Atlantic Crossing
Mon 8 Jun 2015 20:30
Position 37:03.0N 045:23.0W 2030 GMT
Speed 6 knots. Course 110 deg Magnetic.
800 Miles to go to the Azores.

Past the halfway mark today!! In the last 24 hours we logged over 175 miles so great progress towards the Azores. The wind is lighter today and the deck is much drier. We are now sailing with a full main and full genoa on a beam reach with 12-15 knots of wind from the South. Dolphins have come by a few times today. But only for a quick visit. No fish. We have been dragging a fishing lure for over 500 miles and not even a strike. Many cargo ships around so we must be near a trans-Atlantic shipping lane. Alex has finished Shantaram (933 pages in 6 days!). All good onboard.
