NF to IRE - Day 8

Can't complain about today. Steady 16-24kt wind allowed us to average 7.5kts, meanwhile we still have two reefs in the main. Fog continues to come and go but today we had some brief rays of sunshine. Sea state became less confused as the day progressed but the waves remain dramatic and we've been surfing them all day. Visiting porpoises are still jumping and giving us quite the "sea-world" show. And if these things aren't enough cause to be happy, today we passed the distance halfway mark! Cape Race, Newfoundland to the Fastnet is 1800nm and we've done over 950nm.

The weather charts show interesting activity around us and some uncertainties approaching. It's looking as though the final passage days will be anything but dull.
