Hi all,

Waking up all curled up against the side of your bunk, or if less lucky almost falling out, that has been a while. Around 3 am the promised wind reached us with 45 knots. We prepared already, so nothing unexpected. After a bit of bracing the ship got back on track with around 8 knots. The sun was out all day and made it into a perfect sailing day. Beautiful blue water and sky at the same time. Seabirds riding the wind. Jordi and lots of VC taking pictures. Some of us caught a wave and got a "bit" wet...but that is part of the deal! Good practice for what is to come and always good for a laugh by the ones watching and not hit. By the end of the day the wind decreased and now, a couple of hours later, the sea-state calms down as well. We're about to set the royals after our evening coffee time and brace a bit as well.

The atmosphere on board is good! People are enjoying the sailing and all that's around; lectures of guides, lectures of the crew, the food and each others company.

Groetjes, Janke
