10 May 2012 | Sea
Hi all, we left Antigua this morning, heading for Ponta De;gada / Azores, some 2260 nm away. As we are still in the easterly tradewind zone, we have to sail first to the NNE and later in the westerlies to the East, probably adding a few hundere miles to the direct route. We have unstable E to ESE winds 12 - 18 kn, and waves from the NE 1.5 to 2 m. Andrea is doing fine, we are talking and cooking any signs of sea sickness away. Andrea is writing a blog in German: www.dreastoern.blogspot.de Lennard, Emily and kati are since Sunday in Hamburg staying with my sister and despite cool temperatures, they like it a lot.
