Atlantic Crossing Update #16. Our current GPS position is as shown above. Our boat speed is 4.5 - 5.5 knots and the wind speed and direction are 16 - 18 knots at 072 degrees true, and the swell is approximately 5 meters ENE and 3 meter sloppy sea from the E. Log distance is 2,687 nautical miles. 210 nautical miles to go and at this rate we will be in Barbados on 27/01/2014???
Getting closer now A vision of land ahead Palm trees almost in our sights.
More of the same. Genoa reefed because of stress lines in the sail. Otherwise, all quiet on the home front.
Happy birthday brother Gary!!!
Love from Kevin, Patti, Marc and Milada
