Atlantic Crossing Update #11. Our current GPS position is as shown above. Our boat speed is 5.0 - 6.5 knots and the wind speed and direction are 13 - 15 knots at 076 degrees true, and the swell is approximately 5 meters ENE and 3 meter sloppy sea from the E. Log distance is 1,979 nautical miles. At this rate we will be in Barbados on 28/01/2014???

We cross each time zone, Reluctant mornings greet us, Twilight lingers on.

Destination looking more promising. Wind continues to push us along a bumpy road. Our shifts changing in daylight hours as we pass through the time zones. We want bikini weather!!!

Love from Kevin, Patti, Marc and Milada
