Safena - Log Day 3/4 - Settling in to ocean sailing!
We are getting in to the routine of ocean sailing and having a wonderful time. The sunsets, moon rises and sunrises are stunning. Initially the winds were quite light but we have not motored since the start of the ARC. We have continued on a southerly route and the wind really picked up as hoped for. Last night it was 15-20 kts and we hit speeds up to 11kts!The watch rota between the 3 of us is working out well. We are having great food and sundowners before dinner at sunset! Each of us is taking turns to cook and there is undoubtedly a competition developing as to who can produce the most lavish meals! Last night Nina cooked an amazing Thai Chicken Curry!Our position at noon was 22 40.86N, 20 48.02W.We made good speed today heading downwind on a SW track towards the waypoint. read more...
