By an unexpected misunderstandig between the gods of winds and our high priest of expectations, the gribfiles, we have been in very little wind the last days. A small circle of blue arrows keeps following us. Blue arrows = not good. Stay away. 5 knots, that's not how we like it. We tried to escape the blue curse, so we invented an ingenious system of confusing movements. One hour we sailed to the Brazilian coasts, the next we headed up north, to Cuba or Miami, desperately seeking ways to keep up speed.
I do not know what Anders exactly offered the gods, but it seems to me that a deal is sealed. At the moment we are making a good 10 knots straight to St. Lucia under spinaker. And it looks like it that this will stay for some time. That's how we like it.
