Rolling Like a Freight Train - Day 20

Well, so much for the southern ITCZ mostly dissipating. We spent much of today on squall alert, with cloudy skies and some rain.

The wind however has been great for the past 24 hours. 20-25 knots from the south east, pushing us along between 6-7 knots. We are getting excited to see the distance to destination steadily shrink on the chart plotter, down to about 520 nautical miles now.

If these winds/seas continue it will be a bumpy 520 miles, since we are taking the waves on the side of the boat causing a lot of rolling. At least it is going by fast though.
