Update on Progress
09 April 2010
At 2330 last night (April 8th) we received a satellite phone call from the schooner Halie and Matthew. At that time they were in the vicinity of Grand Bahama Island, sailing south at 2.5 kts. All is well, except for chief mate Justin, who has a broken hand. They are proceeding to Haiti.
At the moment they are experiencing light southerly winds, which are expected to decrease further, as the wind switches to the north tonight at midnight, and then blow about 20kts.
