Title: Southern Princess Day 15 12z 14:55N 58:04W

After all the excitement yesterday we had a nice quite night. Easy reach with about 7 knots under the keel.
 
Jogging along towards St Lucia with the sheets eased at 12:00 Zulu.
 
Only 172nm to go so we should be in with in the next 24 hours weather permitting.
 
Last night was exquisite. Light breeze giving us 7 knots, bright starlight, even located the Southern Cross for the first time. Much excitement we are heading for the Southern Hemisphere!
 
We now have no moon, yet we can see to the horizon, the boat is clear in detail and some of the brightest stars leave a trail of starlight across the water. Beautiful indeed.
 
And this is the Mahi Mahi for lunch on the second day! We are doing it tough.
 
Talk to you tomorrow and hopefully we will bed at the dock in St Lucia. Pina Coladas; here we come.
 
Cheers
