DAY 1 AT SEA

Last 24 hrs: 141 nautical miles (average speed of 5.88 knots)

All well and good. Sara fights a bit with seasickness. At the moment we're still doing 3 watch shifts. We have been in the land cover of Gran Canaria and drove 65 nautical miles under engine. Reaching winds (wind force 4-5) with poled-out genoa and direct course to the second waypoint off Cabo Verde, still 499 nautical miles ahead. The sun is very strong and warm. First of all we will have some breakfast!
