Ca Canny - Days 20-22 Now actually almost there!
In the last couple of days we have seen much better sailing winds- finally the trade winds appear! On Friday we covered more than 160 nautical miles, and Saturday we experienced consistent 30 knot winds, but had to tack to 235 degrees overnight pushing us further south, a little bit off our ideal course. Then, at first light we tacked again to 290 degrees giving us a straight run into St Lucia with a good tailwind. Today, the wind reached over 40 knots making it a bit uncomfortable on board, and providing a further challenge to Alan who was cooking dinner.
