Atlantic Crossing Day 18 - Key Milestone Reached

We are less than 1,000 miles from Flores Island, Azores. Reaching that milestone made us feel a whole lot better about our progress. We also got the ok from Herb to start heading in a more NE direction. For several days now we have been moving due east. The wind has been very good the last 26 hours. Our last 24 hour plot had us at an average speed of 6.81 knots for 163 nautical miles. It looks as if we'll have 20 knots through Wednesday. The wind should shift to the north on Thursday.

Happy Father's Day to our dad's Tom Forbes and Ron Smith. Hope you had a great day.

All is well aboard Solstice.
