Heading 30degT, 4.5kts, wind 90deg, 9kts apparent. Long easy swells 1-2m. Very smooth sailing and nice speed. We made 120nm in the first 24 hrs, and it is beautiful and sunny.
The crew is getting used to the boat and how to do things like clear the Sargassum off the water generator. It uses a 75ft rope with a prop at the end that makes electricity. Very hard to pull in at 6kts…much easier at 4.5kts!
Making our way easterly to catch the 15to20 kts winds in about 4 days.
Settling in nicely!
