Day 8 - Same same

Day 8 - Same same

Position: N 31° 52,0' W 070° 17,5' UTC 2000

Nautical miles left: 2065

I am not even going to try and deny it, I am restless. That is what happens when a normally hyper active woman, puts herself in a situation like this. Sofia has been living the lazy sailing life for almost a year now and are a little bit more adapted. Still not totally though. I am starting to wonder if I ever will.

The last 24 hours have been just as calm as the days before. The wind has been blowing from various directions, died for a while, and the increased a little bit. Forcing us to hand steer and trimming the sails a lot. As soon as we have put the spinnaker pole up it is time to take it down again. The sun has decided to hide today and for the first day since we left, there has been no tanning and reading books on deck. This morning we downloaded a big weather file and it looks like we are going to get better winds in a few days. We were a little bit worried that we might have to make a stop in Bermuda to get more diesel, but as it looks now we can make it straight to the Acores. We just need to get a little bit further north and keep the highs south of us. I think that all of us onboard felt quite relieved.

LOVE / Deckhand Emelie
