Good morning all from the Caterham Challenge


Position N 022 49.063 W 036 29.522



SOG              10.3
COG              276 kts
TWS               21.5
TWD              154 kts





No problems on board and a good night. As expected was bumpy and noisy with the wind at this angle. I kept the second reef in all night, but be shaking it out after this email. It did mean that I was quite relaxed about the sailplan for the conditions and got lots of sleep, so feeling rested.

Passed halfway point overnight and now the 7 day weather predication is getting very close to me reaching Grenada. Route still looks pretty straightforward staying north of the direct loine but with a good run into Grenada in good breezes.
