Day 9

We’ve finally reached the mid-way point and had a celebratory breakfast with eggs, ham and toast.  This is something we rarely partake in.

Our current position is 31 degrees 51.75 N and 47 degrees 50.87 W.

Currently we are experiencing calm conditions with no wind.  We are therefore traveling about 5 knots/hr under power and hoping for more wind later tonight or early tomorrow morning.

We tried to take advantage of the flat conditions by doing a bit of cleaning and reorganizing but life is relatively unchanged for the past few days.  Occasionally we spot an airplane passing over but haven’t been involved with any contact from any other vessels.  I suspect life will fall into this routine for the next several days until excitement begins to build over the site of land in the next few days.

Safe travels and we’ll be in touch
