We know for sure we must be getting close to home since we can now see the usual trash floating off the Jersey shore ..
Yesterday the west wind stayed with us until another cold front, with associated thunderstorms, went through.
After that we wind decreased and shifted to the North, so we had to motor during the night.
This morning the wind start to shift to NNE however still weak and we can sail or motor-sail a bit more.
