Making a steady 100 miles a day

Sunday, April 23, 2017

Well they don’t make much better days than this for cruising along. Warm sunny day, wind 10 knots, sea calm with overlying swells, not not much, WW II sailing herself and feeling good and in the moment.

Doing some carving and reading, writing and housekeeping. Good food and music. Company today is excellent – well behaved and social, didn’t talk too much and did as he was told. Been at sea a week and as usual our daily average is 100 miles a day, it seems to even out to that number somehow. So we’ll see you in about 16 days.

Ran the engine to charge the batteries and it went fine. I may not have mentioned this but a weld on one of the mounts on the engine has fractured which means that powering is out of the question. The good news is I can still run the engine to charge the batteries. Tried with renewed patience to send SMS on the InReach but apparently not being received at the other end. Not sure where these messages go?

Still heading a little east of north but I’m happy with my course at the moment. Would love to get a long range big picture synopsis of the weather for the next week. For now, I’m trying to keep on the rum line to the Straits so usually around 47 T.

Love to all
Cheers Glenn
