Atlantic Crossing Westbound, December 4, 2012

Noon (UTC) Position
N 16 21.04
W 043 13.587
C 290T S 7.2 Knots
1135 NM to go, 119 NM last 24, 1643 NM traveled on track

We did very well the last 24 hours. This is particularly gratifying after so many days of not being able to break 100 NM. The sun has been out for the last couple of days so the daytime is getting hot (82F as I speak.) At night we often get light rain showers on and off. For the first time we are seeing Sirrus (fair weather) clouds mixed in the the cumulus that we have had all along.

Fair winds and following seas.
