Day 29

Todays reading:

Distance traveled since yesterday:  130 miles
Distance to destination:  1,164 miles
Today was a huge turning point. We were sailing downwind, going slowly, with an almost-flat sea, blue skies, and sunshine. I asked Dick, “In these benign conditions, could we try the autopilot again?” OMG, it worked! It didn’t use too many volts of our solar-panel-generated electricity. We would use it day and night for the rest of the passage.
