Distance covered as of this morning: 506 nautical miles
(Distance in total is approx 2790 nautical miles, therefore approx 2284
nautical miles to go!)
We’ve decided to pick up another weather forecast before definitely making
our Westerly route into the Atlantic. Had a fairly OK night though the winds
were pretty relentless, which is tiring but it does mean that we are still
speeding along! Yesterday we covered 170 nautical miles – a new record !! Fast,
fast, fast. Winds are averaging around 20 knots, which isn’t bad at all, though
they occasionally pick up to nearing 30. Very pleased with how the boat is
handling - Samantha is a real lady of the ocean.
Everyone feeling better and have all had a solid breakfast.
All good. Erwin saw some dolphins briefly but too far away, unfortunately
Shall update again in a few days .....
