After a night of unstable breeze, a few baby squall-type creatures before dawn, we now have passable trade winds.
At the request of my nieces, Alice and Eleanor, we have been keeping a look out for Father Christmas should he do a fly-by in this part of the world. I think it's more likely to be at night as otherwise the reindeer risk sunburn and heatstroke. There are possibly some children on boats crossing the Atlantic who have been good this year and written a polite letter.
