Day 4 downwind

After nearly all upwind sailing so far, dawn brought us in sight of the Sicily shore. An amazing coastline to sail along – looks well worth a visit.

As we turned the SW corner of Sicily up went the spinnakers. Broke one on a gybe so up went another. As the wind built in squalls we switched to a poles out jib and could head straight for our next island to round. Wind now up to the 30s and we’re humming along.
Should be back to Malta tomorrow.
Crew happy and tired and smelly.
