Atlantic Crossing Day 13

Another 24 hours of easy downwind sailing but going too slow to fish now with the wind down to 11 kn. We hope Santa brings us some breeze for Christmas.

It is getting really hot and humid and we have taken to running the air conditioning in the late afternoon while we charge systems with the generator.

Noon to noon: 164 nm, 268d T (23 hrs).
12-23-10 noon position: 15d 10' N, 48d 46' W.

After 13 days at sea we are eating the last of our lettuce but we still have plenty of limes to ward off scurvy. We hear Santa likes rum in these parts and hope he doesn't drink thru our rations.
