Better Conditions Today

The wind has slacked 4-5 knots and gone a few more degrees to the north, and the seas are significantly less--not as high and not as closely spaced. We are still hard on the wind, but not crashing and bashing so much.

At 0840 Local / 18:40 UTC
Wind 070 at 16-18
Seas 6' mostly ENE
Skies 100% high overcast, some low clouds

We survived another night hard on the wind, and are 60 miles closer to our destination.

Our little fleet of boats is spread out over 600 miles between here and the equator, but we had a good copy on everyone this morning. Everyone is doing fine.
