Our 1st 24 hours of the passage have been some of the fastest we've ever done, averaging nearly 8 knots. Winds have been easterly, at about 15-23 kn, seas have been around 2 m. So it's been a bit bumpy, but we're not complaining!!! Bravo seems to know that she needs to boogey, as we're now getting forecast data that shows a sub tropical disturbance to the south of us forming on Sun/Mon. If we can maintain 6 kn, we should be past it, so hopefully the wind, will not die completely !!! Winds have eased to around 10 kn still out of the east, but we shook out the reefs and are still making 6.5 kn.
