Half way across the Gulf Stream
Gulf Stream is relatively wide for our arrival and transit....about 75 nm
across; We hit the western boundary around 11 am and now at 4:30 pm we are
about half way across. Should be exiting the Eastern Boundary by 11 pm. It
was very turbulent with nasty confused seas on the Western boundary for a
few hours....then settled down.
Have only been able to get 10 hours of sailing in so far so have used up 20
% of our fuel....can't keep that up....hoping to see sailable winds in
coming days....hopefully not too nasty on the seas dimension.
All is well.
DTG to Charlotte Amalie, St Vincent USVI: 1109 nm
