The Best Sailing Can Get

In The Gulf Stream
28 57.6N 79 40.2W

We assess the damage and decide to carry on sailing, it's still useable, the repair is a time consuming one and the weather forecast is perfect for sailing north.

So here we are in the Gulf Stream, it's sunny, warm, we are broad reaching in 12-15 knots on a flat boat, but with 3-4 knots of current we are making 10 knots over the ground! For the sailors, our first 24 hour run on Matsu is 215 miles, be a while until we beat that I think!

We have to gybe inshore soon so will lose the current, but have a great forecast for the remaining 100 miles or so, and should arrive tomorrow morning at St Mary's river.

We can now update the blog via HF email so shuld be a bit more news for following us now.
