Detailed Track (50 is the maximum number of point, i.e. once the last point reaches 50, the last point always is 50):
Last night a series of squall brought us changing winds conditions and gradually the winds veered to SSE forcing us back into a close hauled course. Not as bad as several days ago since now the winds is only about 16-18 kt
but still not a very comfortable course.
We have not enjoyed yet the nice Mahi Mahi of yesterday. Perhaps a late lunch today of Mahi Mahi if conditions improves a bit for cooking. Otherwise it will have to wait until our landfall late tomorrow.
This morning squall in the distance with a touch of rainbow.
Last night romantic sunset from Blue Note
