Tough Miles in the Med

Renault Captur have been struggling in brisk, contrary conditions and so Jörg Riechers and Sébastien Audigane have just been in self preservation mode, making only slow speeds and looking after their damaged rudder. In the last 24hrs they have made less than 100 miles making less than 4kts averages. They are heading in a WNW direction closing back towards the Spanish coast.
Meantime the Spirit of Hungary seem to be making good miles towards the Straits of Gibraltar. They are sailing at 13.5kts in reaching conditions 315 miles SW of Madeira, enjoying a good NW'ly wind.
