Title: First Ocean Noon

Hello Friends                                "26:51.8N 16:57.7W"
 
A glorious sunny day and reasonable wind on the port quarter as we head down to approx 20N 25W before turning to the Caribbean. Course 230 wind about 14 knots E
 
Lunch being prepared by our on board chef George and crew variously keeping watch, playing with the sextant or generally dozing.
 
We're flying the full main and the Kemp spinnaker. Saw another yacht a while ago - we think heading south to the Cape Verdes as he passed behind us. Since we have nearly a whole day's advance start on the ARCers, we expect to see some of the larger boats from time to time.
 
Best Wishes
 
George & Michael
