Great days sailing yesterday.  All to windward and virtually all nearly straight at Galapagos.  Wind has now just gone lighter and more into the west so we have tacked and going south.  This should get us to better current and the true trade winds.  Had a squid jump onto the deck last night – ink made a bit of a mess to clear up.  When the wind was higher at 15-18knots in the night we had two birds flying close to leeward using the wind shadow to make flying easier.  They were there for a hour or so.
