Apart from some rain showers and some brief winds that accompanied them, the wind continued to drop. By morning there was none and we have spent the whole day drifting slowly under a cloudless blue sky. Apart from the continuing long swells, the sea has been flat but we have seen no birds, fish or anything else! Karen has spent a while baking cake and scones but we have spent most of our time reading in the shade of the cockpit. We are both anxious to complete the last two hundred miles and a bit annoyed that the forecast winds when we left BB did not materialise. Even when looking just a few days ahead, the forecasters are doing little better than guess it seems!!
