Today is the 21st day out of Las Palmas. I was planning for a 21 day (3 week) passage. I have also managed to get supplies to last this long, e.g. fruit is now running out, I ate the last corn flakes for breakfast this morning, I have 2 slices of bread left, etc.
However, the slow start and the 3 days lost in the westerly winds means that I still have some 1100 miles to go. At the current rate, that means 10 more days…. Anyway I am trying to enjoy the perfect weather and the nice sailing that we have now. I hope mother nature does not have more surprises waiting for me.
I was planning to go to Barbados, but am now looking at Antigua instead. I can from there go south to Martinique, where I will meet the crew that will sail the boat home.
