We made 125 Nm last 24 hours. The winds have most of the time been between NNE and ENE 15 – 22 kn. Even if the air temperature today is no more than 19C, it feels almost like being in the SE trade winds. Clear sky and just 15 kn of wind.
We have passed “Moodancer” wich is also a Sun Odyssey 45, but has a performance rigg, while we have the firlig rig. It feels good, especially since we started more than three hours after them. But of course, I am sure that in St. Lucia, they will be ahead of us. We are not in a competitive mode. Why should we?
The last 9 hours we have sailed with the genova poled out to port and the cutter to starboard. That is a nice rigging.
The sun shines. Tranquillity is about to reach us.
