SY Visions of Johanna Bermuda to Dingle, Ireland Crossing Day 3, post #2
North Atlantic Ocean
Position: 36 410 N/60 00.1 W - Note latitude of 36
SOG 7.5 knots; COG 061 mag
TWS 11 kn; TWD: 139 mag
Conditions: Wind came up steadily this morning, and engine was off at 1045 hours. We have been sailing nicely, close hauled 50 degrees AWA, with full mainsail, staysail, and jib.
Current situation: Seas are modest as they have not had time to build due to gradual increase and clocking. True wind is just forward of the beam and we are slipping through the water quite nicely without significant seas as yet. Scattered clouds, mostly sunny. Bar 1029 mb.
NOTE: Please be advised that I barely had me coffee this morning and I mistakenly put us at latitude 38, not 36. Please note the correction as above.
We almost caught a bird..
All is well on-board.
