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

All day yesterday was spent motor-sailing with light winds of 3 to 7 kts.
Last night an absolutely beautiful sunset introduced us to a very pleasant, calm and warm  night.
Finally, as the grib data had forecast, this morning the wind increased to a more or less stable 10 kts and we turned the
"iron-spinnaker" off and set on a reach coarse following the rhumb line.
Forecast are for wind to gradually increase to 15-20 kts from the East later tonight.

Blue Note favor lunch, Mahi-Mahi served with rice and Pinot-Grigio.
