Greetings from St. Hellena where the wifi costs a small fortune.

Kenny and crew can now see land (St. Helena) after sailing with spinnaker for a couple days in light wind. They are getting good at gybing with it :-) For those of you that are sailors it's sometimes called gennaker - something between a genoa and spinnaker, the tack is attached.

Spinnaker helping in weak wind

Kenny and crew had the spinnaker up through the night and made 3-4 knots with 7-8 knots of apparent wind. Soon they'll reach St. Helena!
