Quick Update

Quick update 1730 27 Jan 03N 30W

Crossing the doldrums now, lots of rain clouds this morning and very light and shifty winds from every compass direction. Hot and humid work changing the sails, the position of the gear, daggerboard and mast canting all the time for max speed. A satisfying 8 hours on deck getting through each cloud..
This afternoon still light but clearer skies so steadier winds, but wind in North so not yet out of the doldrums into the SE Tradewinds. We keep on trying for every mile southwards!
