USA to Bermuda – day 5
Our position at 10.00 (14.00 GMT) Tuesday 15th May
32 35N a quarter of the way back to the UK from the US
070 19W another 2 steps and an eighth of the way back to the UK.
We have 285 miles to go to the anchorage in Bermuda and our 24 hour run from 10.00 yesterday to 10.00 this morning was 126 miles. Average 5.25kts.
Our stats are dropping a bit but not bad as we have fairly light winds. I can’t believe the good conditions we’ve got considering we are out in the north Atlantic and I’m touching wood while I say that. I spoke to Chris Parker weather yesterday evening on the SSB and he has given us a good forecast for the rest of the journey. Hoping to be in Thursday if the wind holds up.
We have blue skies over a beautiful calm blue sea. Only running the engine once a day for an hour to charge batteries, the solar panels and D400 wind generator are doing the rest. I hope the rest of the Atlantic is like this but I fear not.
I have sent our position to marine traffic this morning.
Thanks to my sister who is posting these twitterings on Facebook.
All’s well on board.
