Ripping, Oasis and Transatlantic Completion

A big title. First we sailed really fast, up to 13 knots, in 18 knots of true wind speed to Conception Cay. We were hoping for a special place and we were not disappointed. Thanks to Crewmate Joe, also a fine chef, for providing the “heads up” on the island from prior travels.

9.6 for 3.25

9.6 average speed over 3 hours and 24 minutes on a beam reach with winds from 15 to 19 knots

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The sail to Conception Cay was perfect.

Broke out the code 0 on for a change

Today we arrived in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, marking the completion of our transatlantic crossing. Crossing the Gulf Stream and seeing the skyline of Miami poke up over the horizon was truly exciting. I will remember these days as blissful.

It’s not over…I look forward to sailing Davali home to New York.
