We still have 25 to 30 knot winds and we had squalls all night. The seas are still four meters and since we are still sailing under try sail and staysail, we are only making between 5 and 6 knots an hour. If things calm down later, we will take down the trysail and put up a double reefed main, but I don't want to do it now... :) Chart Plotter says we have 475 miles to go which will put us in on Tuesday. I'm going to pull up the gribs now and see what they say.
We are eating pretty simply- like saltines with hummus, granola bars and apples. What are you having for breakfast??
