The last 2 days of sailing have been downwind blowing 20-25 knots with gusts to 30. We�'ve become accustomed to the wind but the waves still knock us around. Today�'s position report puts 324 miles between the leader and the last boat. I�'m sure it is more today. And believe it or not we are still not the last boat in the fleet. In fact we are at position 84 in the fleet and 51 miles ahead of the last boat that started on Sunday. There are 6 boats that did not start or returned with mechanical problems.
The wind has died a little today but we still took a wave over the quarter coming through the open companionway. The forecast is for the winds to continue subsiding to around 10-15 knots before we arrive.
Everywhere we go the dolphins find us. They came around yesterday afternoon and stayed for about an hour. They were jumping through the waves like we have never seen. In the cabin I could hear them talking to each other. They are not afraid to come near the boat and they seem to enjoy interacting with people.
We go into the tropics at 23*N which is the Tropic of Cancer. We should cross the line this afternoon. I�'m thinking a glass of rum would be fitting to celebrate the occasion.
