Aquavita - Day 12 half way mark
At 1030 (UTC-2) today, 11 days after leaving Las Palmas, we reached the half way mark. We did about 1530nm so far and have about 1500nm left to go in a straight line. The direct course from Gran Canaria to St Lucia is about 2700nm. But we couldn't exactly go along a straight line due to wind directions. With the southern then western angles we did about 300nm extra. That makes the total journey over 3000nm.
I made a roast leg of lamb in the oven that took 2.5 hours to cook yesterday, by the time it was ready half the crew were in bed. To celebrate the half way mark today we enjoyed a roast lamb lunch with fresh roasted vegetables, a perfect midway menu in the middle of the Atlantic.
