DAY 40 ETA MAY 21 IN QUESTION
17 May 2012 | En route to Riviera Beach, Florida
With the information of yesterday, ie Antilles current and very fast progress, I slowed progress by jib reefing and warp. With information available today, ie latest weather forecast, in retrospect, it may have been a mistake. very slow progress today and wind look extremely light for the next 2-3 days. SO, the specter of May 22 appears. No change yet but am now trying to ascertain the ramifications of such a change. One of the most important of those is what the winds will be like between Bahamas and Florida on the 22nd...cannot have a northerly component of any force. And, of course, travel plan of those kind enough to come and meet me. And, how much diesel I have.
Will make decision tomorrow.
