Atantic crossing 2016

12/03/2016

The last hop of the trip to Antigua. Nilaya left the dock at 1620 after an afternoon start. The main sail was hoisted to check the repaired part. The repair works. Good work Tom.

The breeze built as Nilaya approached the south eastern tip of Gran Canaria. With the freshening breeze and nightfall approaching, all agreed the conservative sail plan of mainsail with 3 reefs and staysail was the prudent option.

Nilaya romped on through the night, sailing at between 11 and 14 knots, finally getting some good miles on the log. JI
