The Wind Dies Away
Yesterday evening as forecasted, the wind dropped and we started the engine. Eighteen hours later, it is still running and looks like it will have take us the rest of the passage. There is eight knots of following wind and that is helping to keep our speed at around six knots. Genoa and ghoster are up (like twin head sails), the main was slapping just too much in the cross swell. ETA around midnight tonight.
 
Miles travelled in the last 24 hours: 135 miles
