We have crossed the equator and are in the general area of the ITCZ. Winds
have been very light - less than 10 knots true. We are flying our asym and
have managed to maintain 4 knots most of the time. After almost a month

get into the eastern trades. we have neither seen nor heard another boat in
4 days. Fair winds and following seas.
