Storming Along

I seem to have isolated the water leak and have managed to save a little under half my original water supply. We sailed through several rain showers late yesterday afternoon so the prospects of catching water are good.

We are storming along at 7.5- 8 kts at the moment, having made 60 miles in the last 12 hours. The sky is wearing a thin patchy low cloud that covers the sky at the moment with tinges of pink and blue amongst the light grey. We are sailing just off the south wind that has blown all night at about 15-20 kts. 

The motion on board is fabulous if you are lying down. More than challenging if you try to stand up. I am feeling fine and the tummy situation seems to have settled.  I’m going back to my nice warm bunk to try to get a few more winks before facing the day head on. 

I’ll send this off now and hope it finds you well.  XO
