Well what an eventfull period. Last night we backed off and went South. The
trades although weak are supposed to come in tomorrow below 18 degrees North
so we headed due Sout for that. We were sailing at 6kts but not getting
closer to St Lucia fast probably 1/2 miles per hour. Thats why trhe web said
we will get there in April.
At 3PM the wind died totally and we motor sailed till now. We are taking a
bit of west but still going mainly south.
The new game is diesel conservation and how much we use vs how long to get
there vs when will the trades appear.
During the sail today we got the boat back in order, Christian and I cleaned
all the salt off the decks cockpit, rinsed the cushins dried them and now
its a lot more comfortable onboard again.
Hoping for wind by tomorrow morning.
All our love
