Its Tuesday morning, since 4 am UTC we are sailing again. Guess what angle...upwind )) for sure. Last night was quiet, almost no wind my iron friend was doing all the work over night. The sea was flat like a mirror, a high pressure system is moving down here and will bring soon some rather strong winds.... - Stephanie wrote the following mail :

Hi Markus, latest model shows strong SE winds developing towards Aegean Sea
during tomorrow night and strengthening further Wednesday, perhaps up to
gale force locally and with some poor weather with it. Then looks like
easing again during Thursday.
However- the sails are working right now, the forestay looks stable and the self tacking jib is looking great. The good news about Stephs forecast is that the wind is turning to south east, that means wind from almost behind. Ill try to stay a bit on the south side of the med to avoid the worst, well see if this is working. ETA in Didim is somewhen during Thursday, hopefully ..... about 327 miles to go.
