Atlantic Crossing 2nd Leg Day 13 - Crossing Traffic Lanes

This afternoon we started getting close to the outbound big ship traffic lane. As we approached within two miles of the traffic lane, we decided to cross the traffic lanes to get to the small vessel side. As we crossed we had to divert course for three freighters. They were heading out in a steady stream. At times we had six ships tracking on radar. After five hours we had crossed all lanes and resumed our course to the NE.

Today has been a warm and sunny day with no wind. We have been motoring all day until 8:00 p.m. The wind has come up and with the favorable current, we are now sailing at 4.6 knots. This is our last night of the Atlantic crossing and we are feeling pretty good about it.

All is well aboard Solstice.
