Almost dawn, a long night of slamming upwind (Class40 hell). At least we don't have to sit on the rail hiking out... Wind going from 10 to 20+ knots, occasional short squalls. Two tacks to avoid the forbidden traffic separation schemes (there are a few ships around but not in the TSS) and Tenerife. Complicated weather and no trade winds in sight. So we shall read the tea leaves. A little hard to keep tea in the mug with all this bouncing around! Campagne de France somewhere north of Tenerife
