Broadblue Rapier 550 - Blue Wonder – Friday 3rd December
18 19N 45 12W
The downwind ride continues with 20-30 knot tail winds. Still too much wind to put up the parasail but we are making good progress under jib and reefed main. We have made up a couple of places on the multihull fleet and look forward to a little lighter weather tomorrow.
We passed the 1000 miles to go milestone last night without incident watching TV and relaxing on this boat is very easy, even in the arduous outside conditions and so it not really a hardship. The worst thing so far is that I forgot to change over the water tanks before my shower yesterday and ran out of water before I got all the soap off!
The temperature is starting to rise too with both water and air temperatures coming up. Looking forward to seeing some of the Caribbean.
