Sunny with little showers

FRIDAY 20th of May 12:00 Ships-time (UTC)
12-58S : 009-07W, Underway Sailing.

Sunny with sometimes some little showers with increasing winds to force 5 to 6 Bfrt from EbyN (20 to 25 kts)  Seawater: 26,2 degr Celsius.

Making still good progress but yesterday afternoon the SB-lower stuns'l boom iron bended forward so we had to take the lower and upper stuns'l down.
This morning we took the fore course & lower topsail in their clews and bunts, so we could Cockbill the fore course yard.
In this way the SB end of the course yard is down to the Focsle and the welding on that iron can be done this afternoon by our technical team. 
Hopefully tonight we can set all the canvass that we need again.

Done 24hrs = 151M = 6,3kts in 308 degr.
Done 42hrs = 265M
ToGo = 435M to Ascension

Alles Wel
