Since our miserable 30 hour portion things have changed. We had a lovely sail for the next 24 and are now motoring. We tried using Ray, our autopilot, to steer the boat Ray did well but used more electricity and the wind generator could not keep so we ran the engine a bit to charge the batteries. Last night the stars were magnificent.
Our current position is 27 degrees 24'N and 068 degrees 06'W.
We are motoring east to get the easting done before the trades fill in further south. If the trades fill in we will need to head south which at this time would bring us to the DR so we are motoring to 065 degrees W.
We are both doing much better but the motoring is not as nice as sailing.
