Noon Position: 21 31.1 S 083 16.7 W
Course: 285 Speed: 3.5 Knots
Wind: Southeast F2 Slight Breeze
Weather: Partly cloudy, warm
Day’s Run: 149 miles


We have put in a couple of good runs over the past two days but now the wind has decided to leave us for a while. We are still making good three plus knots but as usual with a lull after a fresh breeze the seas linger on and old Sylph is rolling as she runs square with the beam swell, the mainsail is slatting heavily. Might replace it with the drifter shortly if the wind doesn't pick up.

All is well.
