Detailed Track (50 is the maximum number of point, i.e. once the last point reaches 50, the last point always is 50):

Right now we are sailing with some of the best conditions.
The high pressure area is North of us on the Mindelo-BVI rhumb line and here at latitude 13N we are enjoying  the trade winds fluctuating between 10 to 13 during the day and 15 at night.
The sunset last night was beautiful with 3 of 4 of us seeing the green flash. Unfortunately the camera was not able to record that.
Today condition permitting we will try again.

The entertainment of the day was to  launch the kite with the GoPro camera.
All went well but the video from the GoPro was a bit too shaky. Tomorrow  will try to stabilize the came with some weight and a "tail".
