703 NM to to, 2073 NM on track, 137 NM last 24 hours (A record this trip)
We obviously made very good time the last 24 hours. Winds have picked up and slowly veered to the Northeast. This is a great direction for making progress. The waves are still on the beam so we are rolling a bit but they will shift over time more to the stern also.
Still experiencing lots of clouds and occasional rain so we are still on electricity conservation. In fact we ran the engine for an hour last night as we are not quite charging as much from the solar panels as we are using each day.
Fair winds and following seas.
