860 miles, updated

Just checked the yellow brick chart to see GANNET covered just shy of 66 miles in the last 12 hour leg.  Wow.


Checking in with Webb's yellow brick track this morning it shows that the last mark was about 860 miles from St. Helena.  It seems his estimate of a three week sail from Durban to St. Helena will be pretty accurate.

Ventusky shows following wind, above, and waves, below, and clear skies.  From a distance, it seems like pleasant sailing.  I'll look forward to reading Webb's passage log.

Just beautiful sailing here yesterday, my fourth sail in February.  A rare event with both the Pilgrim and oldest daughter on board.
