24:49.3N 64:26.9W

Position at 2020 UTC.


We had the engine on throughout the night as the wind was very light from the north.  It filled in this morning from the WNW and we’ve been sailing since then.  It’s nice and sunny but the sea is starting to build.


As usual we sailing close hauled (so much for the nice easterly trade winds we’re supposed to have). 


It’s getting colder at night and Mary’s started wearing a fleece for the first time in 6 months!  Still shorts and T-shirt during the day.


450 miles to go.  ETA Sunday night / Monday morning (depending on the wind).
