Boat Speed: 5kts
We had to start motoring just before noon yesterday when the wind dropped to just 2kts. We chugged away until just after supper when the wind piped up to 5-6kts from the SE and we were able to sail again, albeit damn slowly. Leaving the steady, strong trade winds behind after three months we’re skirting round the Azores/Bermuda high in unstable conditions so the wind (when there is any) is swinging between E and S and in strength from 2-3 to 10-12knots. It’s all making for pretty slow progress. Still, with luck, we’ll be half way to Bermuda sometime tomorrow afternoon and thats always good for morale.
