We are 2 days into our crossing to Madagascar and we have been having great winds, it is about 15 knots on the beam to on the quarter and you can't ask for very much more. The waves are about 2 meters so the boat is handling them very well, the wind vane is steering so life is good. The boat we are traveling with, Mojombo asked that we not put our position on the page that everyone can access for safely reasons so I will report it here. We are currently at 17 26S and 54 28E and heading north at about 6.5 knots. It is hard to believe that the summer is almost over in Canada, hope you are all well.
