SY Visions of Johanna Bermuda to Dingle, Ireland Crossing Day 11 post #2
North Atlantic Ocean
Position: 45 26.9 N/32 48.5W
SOG 8.89 knots; COG 080 mag
TWS 20.3 kn ; TWD: 0334 mag
Current situation: We have been sailing fast all day, just forward of beam reaching, and have averaged better than 9 knots (not including the twin 10 kn hours early this AM!) through the day. Yesterday was a 214 nm day...today should be similar I hope. Gobbling up those miles we are. We have full jib and staysail with double reefed main and the ride is remarkably comfortable for speed. Steady NW wind, sunny overhead, crown of clouds all over the horizon. Bar 1006.5 mb.
The pilot house protects the cockpit from the wind and there has been a bit of sunning going on today. All good.
