At Sunset Sunday we decided to drop the sails and head DDW and ride the 5 meter swells at our back (a much more civilized way) so we could have a less eventful night and each crew getting some real sleep albeit only 3-4 hours. Motoring with the two 54 HP diesels at the most efficient 1600 RPMs gets us going about 6 knots; but with the 25-35 knot winds and 5eter swells at our back our speed over ground averages 7.5 knots and sometimes surfs at 12. The new comfort level not only allows sleep but food prep. I made an onion soups for the boys who are still talking about the Colcannon I made a couple days ago. Today I will venture farther into a fish soup starting with whole fish boiled down into a stock. Bread is holding out and showing its age but thats perfect for dunking into hot soup.
Our current position: 33 35.089N 011 51.888W with an ETA Las Palmas early on the 15th.
It’s all good just rough,
