02:00 until now the winds strengthened to 30 knots and our
speed slowed to an average of 5.5 kts. We have come in close
to shore to see if we can get some relief (I am not sure how,
just wishful thinking) and pick up a counter current.
Floscan is suspect. When we fueled up in PV we confirmed that
we burned 3.8 gallons per hour which includes 6 gallons per
day using the generator.
Speed 7 kts
Wind 30 knots apparent
Distance to San Diego 706
Fuel remaining 732 gallons
Remaining range at present speed, no generator 1,423
am still wondering how Jeff Merrill ended up on the Barbados
to Panama downwind sleigh ride Leg and Dennis, Gary and I
are crabbing our way "uphill"? They say you are supposed to
hire people that are smarter than you are, and I think we
have accomplished this.
