Current Position: 14 06N 070 46W
24 hour progress: 144nm, 6.0kts avg SOG, 430nm completed, approximately 620nm to go, current weather is warm and sunny with scattered clouds. Wind has been a bit more up and down and shifts directions, but we generally are continuing on a broad reach with around 20kts +/-5kts true wind. We have one reef in the main and one reef in the main jib, making a course of 245-255T. The winds have shifted enough to improve our course significantly! Perhaps it is poetic irony or the gods laughing at us that after our failed attempts yesterday to sail deeper the wind simply shifted enough that the previous sail configuration is now working significantly better. Whatever it is we will take it!
The crew continues to do well. The boys completed school work early and enjoyed an early afternoon movie with Dad. The refrigerator is working much better this passage than the Atlantic crossing, thanks to Jon's adding another two filters to the seawater circulation line. We aren't making as much power as we would like because our hydro generator keeps getting fouled with sargassum weed. Otherwise, things remain slow and the seas comfortable enough. The cats are getting plenty of sleep.
