Dag Elva: Caribbean to the Azores
Mon 21 May 2012 16:00
It's definitely getting cooler as we all wore shirts and even tröjor at times throughout the dag. It still was comfortable and sunny but unfortuntely the wind has been very shy lately and finding it has been a chore. We motor-sailed all last natt and most of the dag. We even took in the sails and just motored along as we had less than 10kts of wind for most of the day.
The wind picked up a bit in the eftermiddag, so we were able to but out the sails. Due to the lack of wind, we only did 106nm idag. Since the Azores are fyra timmar ahead of EST, we started to adjust our watches and clocks idag and moved them ahead by ett timme. We will do this tre additional times before we get to the Azores.
The highlight of idag was the trettio or so dolphins that paid us a visit idag. They were all around Felicia and we could hear them communicating under the water to each other. It was quite amazing to see so many, they were literally everywhere!!
Freddy wants to tell his farmor that he is safe and healthy and having a great time! He sends his love as well. Fredmeister also wants to say that he had a very nice chat with his far idag!!
That is all for now.
It is almost time for our traditional shot of rum for passing the 1000nm mark, meaning we have less than 1000nm left to go. Hopefully, we can come up with another reason to have a shot of Caribbean rum imorgon :)
