Catching up: March 20th to March 26th – 23rd

Thursday March 23rd, 2017

We spent the day completing our jerry rig on the exhaust and preparing Fracas for the Gulf Stream. The cold front arrived as advertised and with a vengeance. Wind gusts were over 30 and the wind was 24 to 27 kts. There was a little rain in the early part of the pre-frontal wind but after that it was pretty dry and there were no squalls to speak of.

In one of the periods when our BTC phone had a connection I emailed Chris Parker for routing and a strategy for crossing that took into account our lack of a reliable power source and our Whitby’s inability to sail efficiently dead down wind.
