Title: trade winds at last after ITCZ

5 54 S 95 19 W
 
Glad to be out of the ITCZ with rain, waves and no wind. Wind now SE at 15 to 20 kts, boat speed 7.5 to 8.5 at 220 deg. Will get below 6 deg south to avoid any convergence weather ot light winds that may move down from the north as get more west.
 
Repaired main sail and genoa look good, so heres hoping they do a good job now.
 
Still cant find a time and freq for a good surface analysis chart on SSB.
