Today’s update is via Nick, Diane’s sailing partner who was down to Florida to prep. the boat for the latest adventure. Nick writes:

Diane says she’s having a blast! Making great time almost laying the next mark. VMG is about 6kts. Beautiful sunny, perfect sailing weather. About 10-15kts of breeze right now (10am).

Diane had a problem with the autohelm last night but fixed it this morning. She had to work to avoid the cruise ships which she said where clustered. Almost sounded like there wasn’t much room between them. Lost the satellite at that point.

Tim again. I’m left pondering if they’re all xThunderbird skippers that had Diane musing about no-air August raft up regatta parties.

Nick strapped on his weather forecaster hat, the one with the anemometer on the top. Nick thinks it will get light and shitty shifty for most of the rest of the day. Then, starting around 4am Wednesday, it’ll start filling in again. At first from the North and going East as she gets further south.

I popped over to to take a look. There the weather looks light until Wednesday evening.
