We can steer about 1 point higher and keep the speed, which is good. 

Perfect sailing conditions although we hope for a bit more Easterly breeze, the forecast is promising us that for the Sunday.

Then the sheet in the deckhouse will be laminated so no adjustments can be made anymore. 

Meanwhile the Sun is nearly going from the East to straight above our headsto the West in a couple of minutes during Noon, so we are coming closer to the day that the Sun meets our Zenith.
