Slowly making progress down towards the equator. Should hit the Inter Tropical Convergence Zone (aka Doldrums if in the Atlantic) around 4 degrees north - 100nm ahead. Then we expect to motor for 2 days to break through that area of no wind and into the SE trade winds on the other side (should start around 1 degree north). At the moment we have very light northerly winds, the tail-end of the wind system that covers the Caribbean.
We have sailed past a number of Green Back Turtles and various dolphins.
All going well.
