Atlantic Crossing Day 2

We have been having a smooth mostly motorboat ride under fair skies with little wind. We did try to sail yesterday for a few hours using our Code Zero headsail and full main but could only manage windspeed on a beam reach. So when the wind dropped below 5 knots we fired up the D-sail again.

Our noon position 12-11-10 was 27d19'N, 15d54'W. Our course is 230d Magnetic.

After motoring all night at 9.0 knots with little or no wind, we are under sail again this morning with the Code Zero making 7 knots.
