SY Visions of Johanna Bermuda to Dingle, Ireland Crossing Day 14 post #2
North Atlantic Ocean
Position: 50 12
SOG 5.3 knots; COG 054 mag
TWS 27.6kn; TWD: 132 mag
Current situation: That's what Ari would say, a bit of a blow. Wind increased from the SE all day, and averaged 33.5 kn at the 13:00 PM log. Dangerously close to a gale. We are handling this quite well, as is Visions of Johanna. Andrew (me too) has gained great respect for the north Atlantic, and I think he is going to name his first child Pilothouse. I also think that we are over the hump as I am finally beginning to see readings down into the 20's, and even a 23 kn reading. Whoohoo.
No long epistles from yours truly today.
Still 455 nm to go to our WP approach.
