Twelve hours darkness is a long time. The wind dropped a bit to 15 to 20kts after midnight, which turned the sail from wet into dry. Much more pleasant. My headache is almost gone, still need to be careful with my movements as seasickness is still around. Hope for a decent breakfast once the sun is out and my riggcheck done. Have not eaten since departure apart from a piece of bread with cheese. On the positive, the clouds dissapeared, so did the moon but 360ยฐ view on a sky full with starts is just amazing and pays a little bit off against the energy to put into this passage. Got my Pactor modem working now – Windows, no comments – and will now download the latest weather forecast to check my progress against the planned schedule. Looking foward to see the sun coming out.

Fair winds…
