Day 6 SXM to Newport

Noon Position  deg N deg  W

Course  -355  Degrees   Speed -  11.5  Knots        Day’s Run – 274  Miles

Weather -  Sunny and calm

Wind  – 20  knots from  200  degrees

It has been another day of unsettled winds but we have managed to motor sail a lot of the time. We also had to negotiate currents and counter currents caused by the Gulf Stream. Now that we have crossed the Gulf Stream the water and air temperatures have dropped. We are now approaching the shipping lane from the North Atlantic into New York. We have only seen 3 or 4 boats in the last 5 days and now we have traffic all around us.

With 90 miles to go we are hoping to arrive in Newport just before 8pm.

Cheers JC
