Day 3 Passage to Trinidad Sunday31st January 2016


Position 13°02'S. 008°18'W

Well it's been a ho hum day, not much has happened, other than changing coarse about a million times.
Serious we have been heading everywhere all day sometime to Brazil, but most of the time back to Africa, I swear it still has a hold on us.
The way we have been heading we could just skip to the top of Africa hang a right, or should I say starboard, and then we could just sail into Morocco or Spain, now that would be nice I really would love to spend some more time in Spain.

But at the moment once again we are actually heading in the right direction, how long it will last I have no idea.
Because we have done so many dog legs today we only managed around 71nm, at this rate it's going to be a very long long trip.

We have had two breakdowns today one, we lost a shackle pin from the preventer holding the main sail, but that was an easy fix, and tonight the generator cut out, we are hoping to have a look at it tomorrow and that it will be another easy fix.

As for the ocean it's been a bit more wilder out here today we have had winds upto 18kts and speed pushing 6 kts, with 2-3mt waves.

At the moment we are doing 5 kts and the wind is sitting on 12 kts, but it's starting to feel like it's settling down some which is nice.

Well tomorrow is another day.
