Last day at sea—we expect to arrive tomorrow morning. Heavily reefed to keep our speed down to 6 knots, to ensure a daytime arrival. We will be at anchor at Palmeira, Sal, and it will be nice to have a stable bed after the Atlantic rolling---very reminiscent of our last crossing in 2007.
The trade winds have been very steady for the last 3 days and apart from reefing to slow down we have had nothing much to do with the sails. Main and Mizzen are out to starboard on preventers and the genoa is poled to port.
114 miles to go! Counting down.
