A lot of squalls

Sailing today was a little bit difficult because we were in squall country the whole day. Between the squalls the wind was not very strong but every time we contemplated flying the spinnaker, another squall would come and cancel our plans!

In the 5 PM net, we were told that yesterday we made 137 NM towards our destination. The situation was not as good for another boat which lost its rudder and was assisted by the communication vessel Cayenne which happened to be close by.

The wind is turning more towards the east we should make it more favorable for us to sail.

Our GPS indicates that we are just less than 666 NM from destination. Interpret this number as you wish!

In other news the camera that the skipper bought just before the trip was lost in the water this afternoon. Luckily this was just after all the pictures had been backed-up
