Day 4 Friday 11 October 2013

I am looking out over a beautiful deep blue sea and looking down into the depths it has an amazing purity and richness. The sky has almost no cloud and we have washing hanging out to dry in the rigging. It is a good washing day, hot with a light north easterly breeze, and a gentle swell enabling dry decks and open hatches again.
It’s not great sailing weather for Chimere so Perkins has been pushing us along since 6AM this morning but pleasant enough for the five of us on board.

Last night a 15 knot wind gave a lively sail and helped us make over 150NM in the 24 hour period which means we have cracked the 1000NM to go point! Yep it’s all downhill from here!

Not much else to report today, I’d better get the washing in.
