Bermuda to Flores (Azores) - Day 9
23 May 2017 | Mid Atlantic
I'm typing with one hand and holding on with other as a squall comes through. A band of big grey cumulus passes over us about once every two hours, with the wind always shifting clockwise and the speed increasing by at least 10 knots. We cope the lazy way- just head more downwind for 10 minutes until it passes. We have a good saw-tooth track. We have now turned towards Flores, maybe a bit too soon, as the latest downloads show less swell behind us. We probably haven't done ourselves any favours by going so fast as we've kept up with the worse weather. It should be calmer tomorrow, with slightly less swell. The less said about the catering on board today, the better. Less than 600 miles to go!
