All is well on-board as we still expect arrival in St Georges early tomorrow morning. Now in company of a couple of other sailboats; Saliander (a New Zealand couple) whom we met in Ghania, Crete in March of 08 and have crossed paths a couple of other times since….and Sled, someone we don’t know…owner is on-board but will fly out of Bermuda while the Captain and 2 crew deliver the boat to the USA. Over the last few hours we have had contact amongst us by radio. Saw one other cargo ship during the night…headed for Durban from the USA.


The wind came around behind us during the night so had to change the sail plan to put up the spinnaker pole for a poled out head sail….been wing-on-wing for last 12 hours…which creates more rolling with the stronger seas coming from behind….but a far easier experience than any part of the Atlantic Crossing in December.


DTG to St Georges: 150 nm
