Re: Weather Along Route to Bermuda

We got to PR on Thursday night. We left Bermuda Friday morning the 21st in 15 kt headwinds, sailing close hauled 30 degrees off course. After a day the winds lightened and switched to exactly on the nose, requiring motorsailing for several days. Then an abrupt 180 degree switch, but only 7-8ts of wind, so still motorsailing. Finally had the best day, day 6 and 7, reaching in 15-20 kts.

Re: Weather Along Route to Bermuda

Saw you guys alongside at the Deliverence, ahead of the cat. Sorry I didn't get the chance to buy you a beer over the bridge at White Horse.
Very nice boat.
