Atlantic Crossing Day 14

We have been at sea for two weeks now crossing the Atlantic. Those of you on our daily passage report list know that the tradewinds have not been very consistent this year and many yachts have had slow crossings. Our sail has not been too bad with mostly light downwind conditions and several days under power.

It is Christmas Eve and we have 630 miles to go to a landfall in Antigua. The weather is hot & humid (hopefully not hot and humid enough for a hurricane) and the fishing has been good. We still have plenty of holiday goodies stocked up from a German supermarket in the Canary Islands.

We did manage to do some caroling in the dinghy going around to boats in the anchorage before the passage and our Thanksgiving Feast was a first for some of the other cruisers invited aboard Interlude.

This year we finished our Med cruise visiting Greece, Montenegro, Croatia, Malta, Spain, Gibraltar and the Canary Islands. We are a bit behind in writing our travelogues but hope to catch up soon with new adventures awaiting us as we arrive in the 'New World'.

We wish you all a merry Christmas and a healthy, happy new year.
