Day 12

Position: 15*33N 49*27W
Heading: 270*
Speed: 5.6 knots
Miles sailed: 1458
Miles to go: 690

Getting closer! The weather has calmed a bit today after 3 pretty strong days. The most we saw was over 30 knots on a night watch! We were able to make good time with the winds, and it looks like they pick up again tomorrow. It's kind of a mix, we like calmer seas with light winds, but we want to get there as well, so I guess today is a little break.

We have still been eating the marlin we caught a few days ago, and the crew is about to mutiny if we eat it much more. I guess we'll leave the last steaks in the freezer a few more days :) Try some chicken. Tonight is black bean tacos, & mexican rice.

Thanks everyone for the emails of encouragement, it gives us something to do every other day when we check email, and feels great to keep in touch.

I guess that's it for now, tomorrow is 3/4 of the way, and we're still hoping for a Saturday night arrival in Dominica, weather permitting of course. We'll send another note on Wednesday.

Thanks for the prayers!
