Passage from Ascension to Grenada Position: S00:00:000 W042:50:97
Just look at that position! I had to cheat a bit and take the readings at 3 minutes past 8am! So we’re now back in the northern hemisphere. If it wasn’t so cloudy at nights we might have had a glimpse of the Plough.
Good day yesterday with 2 knot current until late afternoon then it started to drop off a bit and has gradually gone down to around 0.5knots. According to the file it should be between 2 and 3 knots so don’t know what’s happened to it. We are off the Amazon delta, so maybe something is happening as a result. At around 5pm we had a squall – just managed to get the sails reefed before it really hit us – have kept the reefs in all night as the wind has now gone further ahead onto a close reach.
