Just good sailing!

No motoring today! Just awesome sailing weather. Clear, sunny, warm, but not terribly hot and 15 to 20 knots of wind pushing us downwind at 8 knots, and current adding to that. In the last three hours we covered 31 miles over the ground. Amel boats have a bit of a special sail setup that makes sailing downwind fast and comfortable. On many boats it is not a popular choice to sail straight down wind.

The wind and current has been a bit strong than the weather model forecast, so we are ahead of where we expected to be. It’s still a bit early to make an accurate guess, but the computer says we’ll be arriving at Sandy Hook early in the morning of the 26th.
