Timshel - Reunion to SA Day 9

Reasonable sailing but as wind dropped we are restricted by only having the equivalent of a triple reefed main sail available - our wings are clipped. Such a shame as this sort of reach is Timshel's best point of sail and we would have been flying along. We are now running wing and wing (with what sail we have) as the wind has backed to the East. It is forecast to get up again before we get there - 324 miles to go. The revenge of the small squid continues as the waves and rain the night before last did not wash away any of the ink, hopefully it will scrub off eventually. They must have been airborne as there is ink on the boom and the mainsail, and the dead ones were distributed over the deck from Bow to Stern including on the cabin top around the base of the mast.
