The sea state has calmed way down and we are now in the most ideal conditions that we’ve seen in this ocean. The wind has picked up to around 18 knots, swell around 1.5m.
We added a day to the passage by keeping our sails shorter (to prevent flogging) so we expect to arrive on the morning of the 11th.
All is well.
