Back to sailing after 4 hours of motor-sailing. Total motoring since Cochin 28 hours (or 84 litres @ 3 litres/hour) so doing much better than anticipated on the diesel front. True wind is now well and truly abaft the beam, around 100 degrees at 10-12 knots. With the south setting current and our forward speed we have an apparent angle of 70-80 degrees, Very comfortable. Still making 6 to 7 knots over the ground and keeping ahead of our PredictWind weather route.
