Monday, Brisk 16 knot wind moving us along at hull speed. We should make good time tomorrow too with wind decreasing a bit during the day Tuesday. We did 105 miles yesterday and 48 Saturday. Saturday, the wind died for a while, so we went swimming in 80 degree water 17,000 feet deep.
Found a 2 inch long flying fish on deck; too small for breakfast. There have been four Tropic Birds following our boat for a couple days. They are seagull size, white with black highlights, and have a long thin tail feather. They have a call that sounds like a pulley that needs grease.
Sunday night at 8:00, we were equidistant from Puerto Rico, and our home marina. Halfway!

    Wednesday morning early – CDT
    Winlink shows you on a more northwesterly course. Heading in toward the Gulf Stream? NWS winds look like brisk westerlies today, but slowing down and more from the east and south after. Maybe a little precip too.
    Wishing you good visibilities, light traffic, and your favored winds.
