The wind has been non existent for the last 24 hours, so we have motored along at just over 6 knots. We are now 2/3 distance, and have 161 miles to go. The wind has begun to pick up, and though only slight, we have launched the gennaker to see if we can sail for a while. At current speeds though, arrival would be Tuesday or Wednesday, so we are hoping that the wind will strengthen.
