Over twenty four hours in and we're making good progress northwards. Our first day's run was a very respectable hundred and forty miles and we had a comfortable night. Since then the wind has shifted behind us which means we're rolling - memories of the Atlantic crossing - but it hasn't dropped as forecast, so we are still going at six knots. Hopefully the forecast will prove wrong and we'll keep up the pace.
We're not doing much but chatting, reading, resting, cooking and eating. Oh, and fishing, or perhaps better called pulling a line through the water as the fish are showing a distinct disdain for our amateur efforts. Meanwhile I've finished one book and am most of the way through the next, a nice bit of downtime for me, hopefully Gesa can rest some up in Michigan too.
Little more to report right now, except that last night's cocktail was a St Thomas Farewell, Rum, banana puree, lime juice and ice. Followed by a very nice bottle of Canadian red wine that Ken brought from Ontario. Followed by a sound snooze for those not on watch.
All's well. N.
