Day 5, Saturday, March 29

Lat. 4 28 S Long. 97 53 W
heading 240
speed 6 knots
Dad called today to give the position, seems as though things have been smooth sailing.
In the last 24 hours they covered 133 miles and there speed when he called was 6 knots so it sounds like conditions have been fairly consistent. A friend of theirs, Lynn, has been doing a weather watch and forecast for them based on there reported position. She emailed this morning to say the winds are approx. 12 knots from the SE for the next 3 days and that there are no surprises out there. Good news as far as I am concerned and I am sure for the sailors as well. Until next time take care everyone.
