COMMENT: Beach House -ANCHORED – Ascension Island; 4 days, 8 hours.
We made it in at 5pm. GOOD THING TOO. Their floating pipeline was only 50 yds ahead of us when we saw it.
This is a known hazzard here and I\’m glad we had the light of day to see it.
A bit rolly here. Anchored in 35 feet (10.5 meters).
We sailed 839 miles – Ave = 8.06 kts. The straight line distance (Rhumb Line) was 700 miles. We had to jibe often
as we were heading mostly – directly downwind.
All safe and sound, a good nights sleep will be had and hope we can go ashore tomorrow.
