//WL2K 1550 miles to go

We are almost at the halfway point, another 2 days, have traveld 1264 nautical miles so far.
All is well, we are enjoying the cruise, played come-catch-me with some squalls just before sunrise this morning. We can see them coming at us on the radar. We are traveling almost dead downwind as do the squalls, sort of like playing a video game with pac-man chasing us.
Our wind vane steering is doing a stellar job. Did have a couple of blocks(pulleys) break on it, I underestimated the force this thing can generate. Replaced with heavier ones in short order.
Eating well, Lauri is the greatest cook. Three meals a day and mango ice cream to die for.


  1. Sounds like heaven. Enjoying watching your progress!

  2. Sounds like there's never a dull moment. Glad you've had good progress and plenty to eat.

  3. So fun to follow your progress. How is the star gazing? Can you believe you are almost half way??? How is "the net" working out? Love your posts! xxoo Diane

  4. Paul wanted to say hello and wanted me to ask if you have your spinnaker up?
