Reached the latitude of Bermuda.
Yesterday, in the mid afternoon, we crossed a cold front that give us some good sailing,
unfortunately on the other side the wind was gone and we have been
motoring during the night. Luckily before sunset we found few dolphins as company to escort us for few
This morning a NNW wind allows us to keep a close reach only few degrees west of the rhumb line.
However wund shifted to the North and two hours ago we tacked heading WNW (engine still on helping with speed) in a day we should be able to reach the gulf stream and at that time souther wind should also be in place.
No fish yet to report, so for the past two nights Jeff had to endure my pasta,
however he does not seems too upset by that...
