18°00.742N/29°06.394W, one third
Today we hit the 900 Nm meaning we have covered about one third of the distance to Tobago. In 3 days or so, we’ll have our midway party. Jur has already definitely won the beard competition. I had a shave this morning. Marc and Rutger are still in the competition but Marc should better quit and have a shave too, it’s not making him prettier.
All the maneuverings with the gennaker and poling in and out the gennoa are going very smooth by now. At sunset the ‘Elandsgracht’, a Dutch coaster crossed us. She was giving way but passed us close by to call us over the radio. I didn’t get the message at first but when I asked to repeat it, they told us there were 6 ARC yachts ahead of us and they wished us a safe trip. Nice!
