The title of today’s entry is recycled, but there again we have been at this stage in a passage several times before. It is also rather busy on board with both of us sending out emails about our change of plan, heading for the Mediterranean instead of the Caribbean and the USA. More of this for the blog in a later entry. I will therefore leave it at a position report and add that in lighter winds we are motor sailing for the final lap to avoid wallowing.
