At Sea
38 34.94 N 074 42.56 W

117 miles the first 24 hours. About half way. That's the good part. The bad part is that we have been able to sail only a few hours. Right now, the wind is on our nose and we are motoring into it. Our best speed is 4.5 knots.

It has also been raining off and on, and we had some patches of dense fog. The luck of the draw wasn't with Libby. Ever time it rained, she was on watch. It is cold and wet up there in an open cockpit at night in the rain. Thank goodness is isn't cold. The water temperature is about 65 degrees and the night/day temperatures are about 60/70.

Still, Bob's choice of window is still a good one. The forcast from Friday PM through Tuesday is for stronger south winds. We're much better off getting into the Chesapeake Friday morning.

Not much more to report. Not a lot of natural beauty to see.
