We have gotten to the point of the trip where we are obsessively doing two things:
- Moving the waypoint to check the exact distance left. (We are currently at 841nm!)
- Discussing exactly what we are going to do once we get on land.
We’ve spent most of the day inside, as the conditions outside are far from enjoyable. We are currently beam reaching to 20 knots of wind in an East direction , anticipating arrival even more with every mile notched into our hull.
Christine’s note: Yahoo – look at that circle close! We have set the date for the welcome home party!
And here is a peek at Predict Wind, which I have been using to help the FWL crew learn about what is coming up for them. A day or so more of strong winds then hopefully it will ease a bit … the good news is they are heading in the right direction.
