We now have 185 miles to go of a 500 mile passage and so far we have sailed all the way with the Wind Pilot steering us day and night. Sailing off the continental shelf is always interesting as the depth goes from 200m to 4000m in the space of a few miles. We had a great porpoise / dolphin show last night - loads of them playing with the boat for a while. Not many vessels out here but had to do a bit of tanker-avoidance during the night; after a VHF discussion with them it was easier for us to move. I guess size does matter. Winds have eased per forecast so we now have the cruising chute up again. Breakfast highlight was Kate'€™s boat-made yogurt -yum!
