1. Quiet day of light winds - made good progress but not as fast as the past couple of days.
2. Was able to talk to Herb (Southbound II) and Bill (KI4MMZ) today with respect to weather. It looks like if I go to Horta (Azores) I might arrive in some strong winds but if I were to bypass Horta and head direct for Ireland I would be heading right into the low so the winds would be worse. This is 5 days out so we will see what actually happens.
3. Have shifted from the Western Atlantic Weather Faxes and forecasts to the Eastern Atlantic - a sign of progress.
Fair winds and following seas.
