Timshel - Cape Town to St Helena Day 3
Wind came up first thing but from NW exactly where we want to go. We've been sailing all day in sunshine closehauled, latterly under staysail and reefed main as wind got up to 20 knots true. Seems to be moderating just now, but we aren't used to this upwind stuff - where have our trade winds gone? Sadly the forecast says they are a couple of days away so we will continue plodding north.
