Morning from Waxwing,
I pushed hard yesterday to get south while I had wind. I knew there would be little wind today.
Making about 3 kn now in very light winds.
If you're watching my live tracker on my website you will see I went east to avoid the area of no wind north of Madeira and I think it paid off, we have about 6 kn of wind that is forecast to go north later, so I’ll probably get the spinnaker up to push us the last 70 nm to Madeira.
When I say "us" I mean myself and Waxwing (no stow away) 😂
This time tomorrow I should have dropped anchor, it will be lovely to have phone signal and talk to family and friends, so looking forward to a FaceTime call with my daughters and my son PJ 😊
What a start to my solo circumnavigation, we have sailed approximately 1250 nm since leaving Ireland on the 27th of august and everything went very well.
Wishing everyone a fantastic day today.
Waxwing out ⛵️🌎
