The Trades at Last
The Adventures of Allegria & Crew

We have certainly arrived in the trade winds with a vengence. After have days of light winds and very calm seas with continuous glorious sunshine, we have now found the stronger NE winds which make up the trades. With the wind comes the waves and the swell. Last night we had 20-25knot wind with waves to match so I think everyone has had trouble sleeping as we make our very rolley way down wind. We had regular dark clouds going overhead which result in more wind each time. At least we are going in the right direction and reeling off the miles.
Spirits are high as we anticipate getting to the half way stage (measured by miles to go). So I thought I'd catch up on a photo.
