As of tonight, New Year’s Eve they have travelled 561 nautical miles of a 2400 mile leg.
And received this yesterday: “Wind veered E so we were heading too much west to keep running Cape Verde islands because of very light winds to the west, but soon that will be past and we’ll get the usual 15-20 from the east.
