We have been underwater for the last 36 hours beating into the northeast trade winds. It’s not the most comfortable ride. Only 500 miles more to go! The last four weeks the tradewinds have been anything but consistent. They have been everywhere but where they are suppose to be for more than 24 hours. Now, they have settled in and appear to be here for at least several days. Good times!!
