NYCTEA - Danielle et Michel en navigation


Our current position at 17:15 is
24.21 N
076.66W
Heading is 318
Averaging 7 kts

We are approximately 60 miles from Nassua. Our plan is to continue with this heading up to the GS. This heading should take us in the direction of Fort Lauderdale. From there we will follow the GS as far as we can go based on weather. I think we have a good weather window to make it right into the Chesapeake.

We have been very lucky in that regard. We had two days of Gennaker sailing which was great for speed. Nice to be protected by the banks as the seas where very rolly. Nice gentle sail this afternoon however the Dotham Cut was wild.

We came in as the tide was going out. Let's just say that at full throttle our 76 hp engine put out 3.5 knots. The waves were atleast 2 meters going every which way. Could of used a good stiff drink once it was all over but will have to wait another couple of days before that can happen :-)
