Everyone is safe and healthy.

is great for sailing. The sun is shining with a temperature of 26 C. Wind
is from the North-East ranging from 24-26
knots. We have been
absolutely flying and surfing the long Atlantic waves all night long at an
average of 8.0 knots SOG. With our Mainsail fully up and our boomed out
Genoa reefed we are set on a
course of 264 heading directly for St.Lucia. Yesterday we had dolphins swim and

holding out very well. When we fly
at over 8 knots she likes so much that she even starts to hum and sing to us! We
join her, turn on some great Latino music and roll
