SY Visions of Johanna Bermuda to Dingle, Ireland Crossing Day 15 - only post for today
North Atlantic Ocean
Position: 51 56.0N/14 11.8W
SOG 6.96 knots; COG 096 mag
TWS approx 9 kn ; TWD: approx 195 mag
Current situation: We sailed through the early evening hours, and engine went on at 2200 last night as the wind eased. We have been motor sailing while working out some gremlins in our autopilot, and also our wind instruments, as the ST60 wind seems to have lost all it's settings and we are getting false readings. We managed an end around fix of the autopilot, thanks to Gram's phenomenal "I got your back" support, and we are doing just fine as is, en route to Dingle. Many fishing boats about now on AIS.
This is likely the last post we will send until after landfall, estimated around 0500 tomorrow morning, an hour after first light.
All is well. 133 nm to go to Dingle Bay.
Bill Strassberg and crew, SY Visions of Johanna
