As you can see, we are sailing at a pretty speed in 16 kts of breeze, reaching, so life on board is a little easier. We can boil water without having to hold the kettle so that it does not jump out of the galley!
The night passed with not many surprises, we still keep in sight with the Puma and still in the leading pack with Ericsson Int. and Green Dragon, who are sailing fantastically.
Yesterday we had a number of problems with the communications system on board, and we had to stay nearly all day dealing with resetting, shutting down computers and testing cable connections, but in the end we all managed to put everything to work.
We are sailing alongside the Brazilian coast, in search of the easterly winds which will take us to Cape Town, and we hope to be there as scheduled, around the 2nd or 3rd of Nov.
But first we will see what happens today. And tomorrow. And the next days.
And I will be here to tell you.
