DB 91, 10452 (GPS 95) Not bad considering. We are now 2825 miles from Falmouth and at best we have about 9760 miles to sail – not quite a quarter of the way and this is day 27. Dec 11th is still on the cards and we should go a bit faster from here. Mostly on the wind down to Trinidade so will depend on the sea state. Actually very difficult sailing – a boat this size just stops in this sort of sea unless there is enough wind to drive it through – at the moment there isn’t and the best we can do is about 245M @ 3.5 kt. Could be a long ride south.
