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

We are wing-to-wing sailing at hull speed towards Virgin Gorda !!
Early this morning we spot the rocks of Sombrero Island and now we are on the look out for Virgin Gorda.
We expect to make landfall in the later afternoon.

First sunset of 2015

Sailing wing-to-wing with bright moon light.
