Title: Atlantic crossing

23.11.084n 23.50.167w
No trade winds and sailing very slowly to start. Speeds as low as 2.7 knots. Turned SOuth to try to find wind sooner and after 2 very slow days now surrounded by trade wind clouds - hurray!!
Sailing dead downwind with working gib and genoa both poled out - seems to be working OK, now 4-5.5 knots.
