Less than 100 miles, with a north easterly wind which holds quite well. We are flying at 9 to 10 knots of boat speed, up wind on a calm sea water. We are aiming approximately at destination, Malta. Fighting hard to keep the boat as fast as possible to keep the distance with the rest of the fleet. We cannot see Stig anymore. We are hoping the wind will be with us as much as possible during the night. Aeolus, stay with us!
