SY Visions of Johanna Bermuda to Dingle, Ireland Crossing Day 2 post #3
North Atlantic Ocean
Position: 35 03.5N/61 35.6W
SOG 7.5 knots; COG 078 mag
TWS 13.5 kn; TWD: 309 mag
Conditions: Wind has steadily built from the port quarter.Still sunny but with more clouds, probably 30% - 40% cover with cumulus that have flat bottoms. No convective tops.
Current situation: We have been sailing beautifully since 1445 hrs. with reacher and full main, with apparent wind just aft the beam at 12-13 knots. We have a bit more east in our course (WP1 Bearing 061 mag) than ideal. Plan will be to substitute the jib for the night,head up a bit if not too powerful, and put a reef in the main if wind holds.
We still hear Bermuda radio on the VHF.
All is well on-board.
