Timshel - Reunion to SA Day 5


Wind at last! Hooray! We stopped the engine yesterday to transfer fuel and check levels and spread the sails wing and wing to catch what zephyrs there were - so we made maybe 2 knots in 5 knots of wind for a couple of hours, then it arrived, 13-17 knots from NE so lovely sailing wing and wing all night making 6 knots or more, and so far today too. We switched the sails to the same side to come to the north a bit as there have been reports of an adverse current by a boat that took a more southerly course.
