Today we are going to decide if Salvador is still a practical target or to make landfall further north on the Brazilian coast and thereby shortening our passage by several hundred miles. We are still at least a week away from the equator and as light winds are forecast to continue and with a need to conserve fuel for crossing the doldrums it might be better for us to take the shorter course.
On the bright side the weather is very pleasant, the nights warm enough to be on watch dressed only in our tee shirts and shorts. Life on board is very relaxed and there is little to do apart from eating, reading, sleeping and observing the few seabirds, flying fish and jellyfish that pass us by.
