Jan 30 - Enroute

Pos: N08deg14.98min/ E091deg18.00min. Day 3 - 128 nm. A bit lighter air last night, directly from the stern. We ran with the pole on one side of the boat, then changed it to run wing and wing, then ended up furling the headsail and just running with the main. This morning the breeze freshened, and we once again poled out a partial jib to run wing and wing. Lots of practice with the pole. Pleasant conditions; our present speed is 6.5 kn average; seas are 1 meter. There's about 650 nm to go to our outside waypoint.
