We left Chatham Bay, Union Island at 2:00 am AST for Bonaire.
We are now 100 miles west of Union Island sailing in moderate
winds and 8 foot swells. All in all, comfortable but a bit
rolly. We are sailing a bit slower than planned as the winds
have moderated all afternoon. We are still doing 6.5 knots.
Our location is N 12 degrees 23 minutes 86, W 64 degrees, 14
minutes 58. Heading 285 degrees magnetic. It is now 16:30 AST
or 20:30 UTC (Zulu). Here is a picture of the first mate
sheltering from the sun with the ballooner behind her.
