As was forecast wind diminished to about 10 kt. So far we have been only sailing with the genoa,
but now we also have the main sail up with one reef.
It was again very cold last night but finally the temperature start to increases and even the water temperature went up a degree.
Michiel is recovering from his sea-sickness and he feels better now. In about 24 hours we will reach Cape Hatteras and then make
a turn east to cross the Gulf Stream. It looks like we might catch up with the Caribbean 1500 that I believe is schedule
to leave on Monday.
