Position 35:59.128N 05:36.976W

Around 8am local time Yael ha yafa and Jeff cast off from Gibraltar

This is the course and speed from the AIS site:
As reported over the phone and as noticed by the reduced speed after the Gibraltar Bay Blue Note encountered opposite current,
(Perhaps a slightly later departure time would have resulted in finding a favorable current also after exiting Gibraltar bay)
But then as approaching Tarifa, the wind from the East (as COAMPS model of yesterday was predicting) and favorable current were helping reaching a speed of 6.9 kts.
