We could not catch a break! The winds that were supposed to occur down south ended up happening up north, back where we were! We quickly turned around and began making our way back to where we were yesterday.
What about the winds that we were told would happen? Nope, nothing, nada. We were bobbing around with no wind in sight.
To make that day even better, I couldn’t get a single weather fax to come in! Everything was gray and static!
When we planned our transatlantic voyage, we were planning on covering 100 miles per day since this is average. Being how we are a bit slow, we were expecting to cover 80 miles per day. We are now a week out from shore and still hanging around the Bahamas! That is where people go because they don’t want to sail far away from land go!
How are we supposed to cross an ocean if we can’t even break away from land?
