599 nm to go. ETA Tuesday morning, 231114.
This is all we see 360° around, nothing but light blue skies, puffy clouds and the deep blue ocean. The Atlantic is about 16,500 ft deep here
Looks like we still have about 40 miles of doldrums before we catch the trade winds, that should take us about 6 or 7 hours hopefully.
Just before my shift started, Eric saw several whales exhaling through their blowholes, I’ll keep a sharp eye out for them this afternoon.
The wind has picked up to about 8 to 10 knots, but it is still on the bow. We need it to fall off another 15 to 20° before we start sailing this brick.
Today we refilled the fuel tank from nine of our jerry cans, and rinsed the deck of the patio and navigation station with a fresh coating of saltwater.
