time 13 days
Distance to destination 2950nm
Distance travelled 2490nm
Speed over Ground 5.5knots
8 to 10knots
Light winds continue to slow our progress and are
forecasted to stay that we for the next 48 hours at least.
We have tried various sail
configurations to get the best of the what little wind there is a and found
that flying the cruising chute to leeward and poling the yankee out to windward
works best giving us 6 knots boat speed in 10 knots of breeze.
It would be more but the swell
rolls the wind and power out of the sails. Still we are making progress and
there is a little more wildlife with another visit from the dolphins and more
birds fishing in large flocks. The nights sky is amazing in the 3 hours before
the moon rises and the milky way and other galaxies can be clearly seen.
