Day 3 - Bermuda to Ireland

Weather: Cooler, but still dry, wind increased (as expected), and expecting a wind shift to SW today (looking forward to that) -
currently more S, SSE.

General Comments: With the wind speed increase we are now moving at more suitable speeds (5-7kt). Chop is also starting to build,
but so far we are both fine. We are sailing on a beam reach. Yesterday was hazy but with a clear night. Today already overcast.
2 boats sighted overnight, and we still have seabirds visiting from time to time. We are no longer hearing Bermuda Radio, so it
feels like we are a lot further along now. Sunrises both mornings have been stunning

Food: Open sandwiches of cheese, tomatoes and salad for lunch, a chicken curry (Rogan Josh) for dinner. The last of the brownies
have vanished (thanks Mary)

Progress: Yesterday we made 103 nm, So far on this trip we have travelled (through the water) 182 nm, and have 2510 nm (straight
line) to go.
