Maria Concordia - Not catching up but still following!
Today is the first Sunday at sea, starting with a shower, fresh clothes and an attempt at having a lovely looking, juicy melon for breakfast, which turned out to be so bitter, that it was not even edible with lots of sugar and had to go overboard - shame! The weather is calm but grey skies, no sunshine and even a tiny bit of an occasional drizzle.
It is also the last day of the first week at sea and I have a distance of 850 nm behind me and 950 nm ahead. This evening will be half-way, or "Bergfest" as we say in German. All along the mainsail has not been out of its bag, following seas and light winds, just using the two headsails wing-on-wing have made this a very relaxing voyage, though certainly not a record-breaking fast one.
The challenge for the next three days will be passing through the centre of the Azores High with fickle and possibly adverse winds, which is laying about 300 nm ahead of me.
Have a good, relaxing weekend everyone!
