Day 9 Atlantic Crossing, positon 14'N 40'W, December 15th.
Despondency of yesterday much diminished as we are now whizzing along at seven knots.  We have the cutter stay up, and below is a picture of us getting some breeze last night..
So we may arrive before 2006 at this rate.  Conversation last night on the SSB, with yacht Regina, about one day from finishing the crossing.
SG:  'We think we will be there by 2006'
Regina:  'Ha, Ha, what is your positon?'
SG:  ' Our postion is 14'N 38'W'
Regina: 'Ahhh,  I see that you were not joking'.
At the moment it seems funny to think of ever seeing land again. 
Bread in the oven, as well as chocolate brownies, so time to go and get some lunch ready.  
Lunch: Bread and tuna.    Supper: Packet rissotto and cabbage.
