Atlantic Crossing Day 8

We had another lovely day yesterday under full sail on a close reach in 6-9 kn of wind. The wind died at sunset and we have been motoring all night. Kurt changed all fuel filters in preparation for what appears to be a calm ahead.

Noon to noon: 192 nm 254d T.
12-17-10 noon position: 17d 20' N, 30d 54'W.

We should get some light wind from behind at some point and may try to sail with the code zero poled out on one side and the number one on the other. We may now finally need those spinnakers we left in California.
