Doldrums: No wind today, no wind tomorrow, no wind anywhere.
In 24 hours, we sailed a grand total of 17.8 nautical miles. That translates into an average of 0.74 knots.
There is no wind out here, and then a squall will come up on you. This gives you a significant push (or so you think) until it passes and you realize that you have only sailed a few feet from where you once were.
We fly our light air sails and slowly make our way through this windless region of the Earth.
