Well done! Keep going as you do. Most likely for up to another two days on the same course. I will keep you updated.

If you carry on like this you have a good chance of breaking the current trip average record and reach the Antilles before 14.02. which would allow for a meeting with EYE OF THE WIND and Capt Michael! Whether the trades will also give you a chance to break the all time best day’s run of 184.1nm remains to be seen.
In order to achieve the best progress WX suggests a more northerly course of about 280° for at least one more day.
