Timshel - Cocos to Mauritius Day 13

Another sparkling day sailing. Just before dark last night we set the (reefed) yankee with the pole wing and wing with reefed main turning more downwind as it was more east. Timshel runs very well like this albeit with some rolling - there is still a big swell. As the sun came up we could let out the reefs and have been going nicely all day. Now if it would just stay like this until we get there! With the calmer weather we were able to tidy up some things and run the watermaker, pizza for tea tonight. Our time is slightly skewed as we go west as we are still on Cocos time - as this is the time for the SSB net and the finish no point changing - but it now stays light in the evening, but sunrise is later in the morning. Of course we are also further south.
