1111 nm to go

Well the day’s run to noon wasn’t bad at  172 but no record. Most of yesterday we were making a good speed with the wind on the beam or thereabouts with it forecast to go around to the NNW later, it actually veered quite suddenly at 2100 and increased at the same time.

Cooking is quite challenging at the moment, we’ve just had porridge for breakfast but have no leftovers for dinner so I’ll have to try to make something. One job I did in the Azores was to put up two brackets across the galley with a length of rope between them and this is a big improvement for security whilst cooking on the port tack which we’ll likely be on until nearly home.


Jock and all.
