Around the Cape of Good Hope, pt.4

There are 300 miles left until Madagascar, where we are awaiting new changes in weather. We’ve almost entered the zone of the South Equatorial current, enveloping the island North to SW. That’s 2-3 knots more towards Africa. So far I don’t like it, given that soon I’ll have to sail here again but without wind. Nevertheless everything is flowing and blowing in the right direction, so what am I complaining about?
