We are having a very smooth sail with only the mildest nighttime squalls getting the wind up from 11 to 15 kn and just a few flashes of lightning in the distance. We started receiving Bermuda Radio on VHF 16 120 nm away (!) and they have a notice to mariners about the Kings Cup racing in the lagoon (along with numerous buoys missing and navigation lights out).
The possible cyclone formation west of the Cape Verde Islands is forecast to go northwest and be absorbed into a huge Low in the mid Atlantic.
So at this point we are on track to bypass Bermuda and head directly for the BVI to rendezvou with Kurt's brother and crew on their bareboat charter powerboat out of Nanny Cay, Tortola.
