Weather was a bit light and lots of direct tail winds (got quite inventive with paddles as spinnaker poles…and playing with the shape of the main) and lots of time at 3 to 5 knots boat speed. Took six days (could have made it five but stopped at a nice island), with right weather 3 days would have been achieved. Top speed was 14.6 knots, not bad considering the load…. had some fun surfing the swell'
