The best sailing ever!!
26 51 N 63 59 W
Not much to say in this update other than to report the most comfortable ocean passage sailing we have seen in this sailing life to date. Seas are generally less than 3 feet and not more than 5 or 6 at their heaviest. True wind speeds are ranging from 12 – 18 kts and generally coming from the South-East which has been giving us Apparent Winds ranging from 10 to 15 on or slightly behind our beam…..and blue skies or star filled nights to top in all off. Hope I haven’t spoken to soon as a very wet low pressure system is going to catch up with us from the South-West late today and will mix it up a bit.
No traffic….have only seen one big fishing trawler Monday morning and 2 big cargo ships…the last one being at about 1 am this morning…the GREAT MARY enroute from Europe to Mexico…I chatted with the Captain (really the Officer on Watch…whoever he was) a bit just to break up the night.
Most all sailing vessels leave the
The meals from Chez Cheryl’s galley have been superb….beef stew with dumplings….lasagna and fresh baked bread….chicken pot pie (and more fresh baked bread)….and the experiences go on. No weight loss on this passage.
Distance to go to St Georges: 330 nm
