Two Fastnets to Go For Miranda

Exactly half way between the nearest bit of Africa and Guadeloupe. West of the longitude of Fortaleza, Brazil, still east of the longitude of the southermost point of Greenland. Distance to waypoint off the north of Guadeloupe: just over the distanceof two Fastnet Races. I'm not sure how much further the last "coastal" section of the race is, but no need to know right now.
It looks like there are interesting things happening to the leaders. A race is never over until you get there. And on that, time to get back to the helm. Blue sky, a few clouds, blue sea, hardly any wildlife, not even much in  the way of a flying fish harvest. Luckily the freeze-dried food is tasty enough
