COMMENT: Beach House -EN ROUTE – Namibia to St. Helena Island – Day 2 – 160nm
Yesterday started slow, picked up speed in the afternoon and stayed with us all night.
We\’ll most likely gybe and head north (about 330 True) toward 20 deg S and 06 deg E as it\’s where the wind should be.
That\’s about two days from now at this speed but should keep us moving and set us up nicely for the second half of the trip.
One thing is..it\’s been very comfortable to date for an ocean crossing. With the winds never building up for long, the sea state remains subdued.
Still foggy this morning and drizzly too! We managed to eek out 160 nm day with about 1000 miles to go! The blog is up…enjoy today\’s lesson…
The Tropic of Capricorn. Remember….there will be a test in the morning!…:-)
