The Caribbean is slowly disappearing in the SW and we have 2400 nautical miles to the Azores. Hoping for fair winds so this last long leg on our six year trip can be a good memory for us all onboard. Just at sunset we had some dolphins playing around our bow and we take that as a good omen.

Wind, wind, wind!
After several days with calm weather we this last night got westerlies, around 10-15 knots and Kulla immediately raised twin jibs on her forstays. What a lovely feeling to make speed again and we really need it now after this last week drifting around.
Position now is 700 M from St.Maarten in the Caribbean and 1400 M from the Azores. Time today for "one third way" celebration.
