The passage north continues at a steady ten knots or so.  The James Clark Ross is between the Cape Verde Islands,  some 100 miles or so to the west,  and West Africa,  some 250 miles to the east.

The weather continues to be lovely,  although the temperature is dropping and was below 20C at mid-day.  There is a stiff breeze and a slightly choppy sea.

With a slightly choppy sea the ship, from time to time,  has water breaking over the bow.
