5th November. Position is at 0200Z. Winds light and variable and unsailable.
We are currently motoring and varying course to mitigate rolling in a beam
swell. For Bobs info heading generally for waypoint 2. A thoroughly
frustrating day with light airs which eventually went aft until they
dissapeared and we started to motor. We are moving along at our economical
and budgeted speed minimum of 6 knots. We are in contact with Lions Whelp
which is astern and to the north of us but is travelling at flank speed so
will catch us during tomorrow. Our courses are now converging as we approach
the Gulf Stream and the temperatur is starting to rise wth a perfectly clear
night in the centre of a high pressure.. Tomorrow looks like being a
difficult day with a vicious front comming through which will produce 30
knot head winds and 10 to 15ft seas.
