And birthday surprise- visit of a big shark in the front of the boat!..
Ocean continues being calm and stable..Today 15 of March we have still 1390 nm left. Our medium is around 90 miles per day and we are happy to sail them. Every night more or less around 02.00 utc wind starts going down and before sunrise drops so much down that needs to steer by hand because boat speed purely reaches 2 knots and wind pilot is not able to steer it. Than after sunrise it start blowing and in mid day Grain de Sable again is moving smoothly towards west. Next day the same,,,next next the same...and the same.
Sometimes at night we get a visit of some black cloud with little rain .and nothing more.
SO we sleep , stay on watch , think what to cook, cook, eat , read, again think what to cook...sleep and stay watches:) Boat is rolling very little so paradise for kitchen. Comparing with our previous crossings and stories from others sailors we feel really lucky to have these conditions. Ok in speed we loose...but all the rest? Probably 1:0 in our favor.
