Noon Position: 39 16.0 N 074 20.0 W

Course: West sou'-west Speed: 3 knots

Wind: North, Gentle breeze

Weather: Sunny

Day's Run: 123 miles

We had another good run overnight, the wind remaining fair and constant throughout. Only now has it started to die off, down to a light 5 knots or so, just enough to keep the sails full and us moving under mainsail and drifter at about 2 ½ knots. We have only 30 miles to go to Cape May, marking the entrance to Delaware Bay. I am hoping we might make this later this evening but if we don't get a little more wind soon we won't be making the entrance until tomorrow morning.

Meanwhile the weather is balmy and warm, a little bit of a change from Greenland.

Bob Cat:

At certain times of the day just recently the sun angles in through the hatchway and onto the settee where I curl up and soak up its rays. This should be very good acclimatization for the Bookstore window. I can feel us getting closer. I trust once we are ashore I can get off this hard tack. Hopefully the Bookstore will know how to feed me properly.

All is well.
