A great day's sail

We had lovely sailing conditions these last few days and are averaging 120nms a day, which is pretty good for us. The winds have either been light - 12ish - so we can fly our spinnekar and go in the desired direction, or 20ish when we have had to take the spinnekar down (after last trip's lesson of not being greedy and tearing the whole sail) and go maybe a little faster but in the wrong direction. This whole vmg (velocity made good) means it's quicker to go off the rhum line on a faster point of sail, but psychologically, I just like going in the right direction with the spinny flying. We were all reluctant to take the spinnekar down at sunset, but again, we've learned our lesson from the previous experience and Mark would prefer not to have to sew the whole length of the sail again. Our rudders seem to be holding up well, if the autopilot is anything to go by. He seems very happy. Also, our water filter is wonderful - the water tastes great and that's from me who is very fussy when it comes to water. Mia was disappointed when she found out today that the water was only a filter and not a desalinater, that question coming after enquiring why we were using sea water to wash the dishes. Mark has had to make some minor repairs to the duogen and so we are happy that that is working again. We all really like our watch system and are getting into a routine of sleeping in the day to catch up. We've now gone past Bonaire, so are heading straight for Panama. Current position: 12.54.23N 68.40.90W

Having met whilst sailing on Bob's boat, there always was a vague plan that we would at some stage sell the house, buy a boat and sail round the world. Unfortunately, we didn't have a house. That was 9 years ago. [...]
