We are making our way North East, but at a very slow pace.
Yes, we are in the 1020 line, yes we are heading in the same direction as the wind on the charts, yes there is supposed to be 20 knots of wind.
Our friends on shore see that we are not moving and message us to check and see if everything is ok. Why else would we be moving at less than 2 knots in 20 knots of following wind? Well, the answer is simple, there was no wind!
We are heading North and trying to make our way through the doldrums without the aid of the Gulf Stream to carry us through these windless days.
