After our 180 mile, record breaking day yesterday, today is slow! The wind has shifted around and we are going dead down wind so have the pole out to windward and are wing on wing. This is the slowest point of sail for Rutea. Now it is a race against daylight (tomorrow) for our arrival in Anatom so we may end up putting on the engine for a while tonight if the wind stays light as it now is.
Just finished lunch, have all had showers, checked in on our radio net and are all settling down in the cockpit for afternoon reading. 118 miles to go!
