We left Setubal at 1300 on Thursday and picked up a South wind. Just enough to make a West course! Our plan was to sail west till we hit the North West winds behind this low pressure system we were sailing into. And that what exactly happened! A sudden wind shift after and than there was no wind for 2 hours. Just waves and heavy rain. Welcome back at sea! This morning with the rising sun we already made a good 45 miles South. The wind prediction says North winds all the way to the Canaries.

Best regards,

Arjen
