ENE 12kt, fair with good vis, 1026mb falling
Max sat his last GCSE on Friday morning; 24 hours later, in Horta, we welcomed him on board; sailing at 1240 for Union Hall on the south coast of Ireland. The wind naturally, was exactly 'on the nose' for Union Hall; by 2040 we were passing the western tip of Graciosa, the last land for the next 1000 miles. Sunday morning at 0845 saw a welcome wind shift to ESE meaning we could lay a decent course under Main & Genoa and give the engine a rest - bliss!

Sadly this afternoon, the wind has backed again; so coupled with a west setting current of 1.1kts (AAARRGH), we are currently on track for Iceland - nice place to visit in June I believe!

Day One Log: 143nm (not quite in the right direction)
