Day 2 Antigua to Florida

Noon Position  19deg 43N 69deg 59 W

Course  -288  Degrees   Speed – 11   Knots        Day’s Run – 269  Miles

Weather – Partly cloudy with 2-3m following seas

Wind  – 20  knots from 110   degrees

We passed within sight of St Croix, US Virgin Islands, and then closed on the coast of Puerto Rico. As we entered the Mona Strait we had a shark following one of our lures for a while. It had one bite and then left it. It was just after sunset and Robbie and Jonny were just getting ready to bring the lines in when they saw it. So still no luck with the fishing.

Around midnight we got enough wind to put up the main and genoa and made good speed for the rest of the night heading along the coast of Dominican Republic. After turning the corner we had to furl the genoa and go back to the staysail making the ride a bit rolly. We are hoping the wind will turn more north this afternoon and we will be able to steady the boat up.
