We are just over half way, motoring for the last day as the wind has been up and down, and now completely behind us, so rather than sail many more miles in the wrong direction we are motoring, and looks like we could be doing this all the way in, as the wind will drop again and not give us any good angles. Though we are looking good for fuel, so not too many number crunching as yet.
The weather has really warmed up, and shorts and T shirts during the day, and less clothes at night, which is getting us in the Caribbean mood.
If we are able to sustain this speed we could get in for Christmas, which is the mission, which would be great, so we can have a nice christmas dinner together and a couple of glasses of cheer. But still a long way to go, but the miles drop off quickly, especially after tomorrow when we should break through the majical 1000 miles to go mark.
That’s all for now.
