Day 7 Passage to Africa “Soaked”

Well still making good progress to Richards Bay and have 450 nautical miles to go. We finally are out of a gale and just coasting along in 20 to 25 knot winds and everybody is feel better now.

Current Position: 28deg 05.3min South, 40deg 17.8min East, COG 286deg M, SOG 6.9kts, 1025MB, Cloudy, 20deg C.

thanks,

    To Sarah – I’m following you and your crew all over the ocean – how exciting for you!  I get some details from your mom too, and will be happy when you reach Africa and “terra firma”.  I can only imagine what your adventure must be like, and wish you all well!  Love, Di

    Glad you are finally out of the gales. NOT fun. I’ve hated being in one for hours, can’t imagine how tiring it must be to endure it for days. Landfall will really be welcomed. Let’s hope the final 400 plus miles are smooth sailing. Anne
