Well 48 hours have passed by and our average is now 7 knots per hour, which Captain and I are
slightly disappointed by.  With the wind right behind us it is hard to take advantage of the
20 to 24 knot winds we have had consistently.  A slight change would mean being able to use our front sails and therefore go so much better.  Better means faster BTW.
Still 7 knots is hard to sniff at, and overall we are very happy.

Day two

That is a wave behind us not a long view of the ocean

Happy that the boat is going along like a train.  Ever constant, no breakdowns and safely.
Happy that there currently is a big moon at night to sail the big waves!
Happy that we have seen 2 birds, and only 6 flying fish have so far sacrificed their lives on the
Happy each night to put two reefs in the main just to be safe
Happy Captain, Happy Miss, Happy Crew!
Not so happy that our autopilot is not liking the big waves and wind right behind us so past 36 hrs
have been all hand helming.  Character building stuff plus I have always said I will be a real
sailor by the time I arrive on other side.
Best speed surfing down a wave goes to Gael at 15.2 knots – Yep the waves are big!

This is Competition Predictions for ETA.  (All numbers given at final moments on land)
Force 7 – 11 Days 23 hours
Captain. – 12 Days 7 hours
Miss – 12 Days 21 hours
Carole. – 13 Days 2 hours

Now it’s my time to helm.
(Now can anyone tell me how to shift the wind just a little!)

Cheers a sailing Miss

PS Happy with the safety line that goes round the entire boat!!

    Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked
    hard on. Any recommendations?

    Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end?
    I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

    It’s truly very difficult in this busy life to listen news on TV, therefore I just use
    the web for that purpose, and obtain the latest information.

    I always spent my half an hour to read this web site’s posts everyday along with a
    cup of coffee.

    Wonderful blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News.
    Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
    I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there!
    Thank you

    fantastic post, very informative. I wonder why the opposite specialists of this sector don’t notice this.
    You must proceed your writing. I am confident, you have a great readers’ base already!

    Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be
    a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83
    views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share
    it with someone!

  16. Dora

    Howdy! This blog post could not be written much better!

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home
    a little bit, but other than that, this is great blog.

    A fantastic read. I’ll certainly be back.

    Howdy, There’s no doubt that your blog could possibly be having internet
    browser compatibility issues. When I look at your site in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in IE,
    it’s got some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Besides that, fantastic website!

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just
    your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.

    But imagine if you added some great pictures or videos to give
    your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this site could certainly be one of the best
    in its niche. Amazing blog!
