Our position is...

 

     16 degrees 29 minutes North, 41 degrees 51 minutes West. We are going 6.6 knots under spinnaker and are on a course of 289 degrees true. The wind is 13 knots app. from apx. 070. The sky is filled with white puffy little clouds and it is 81.1 degrees down below. Last position report I said that those dark clouds shouldn't pose any problems. Well... at about 2:00 o'clock this morning, on my dad's watch, a squall passed overhead while we had the asymmetrical up. The wind came up to 25 knots app. so my dad had to tear us all out of bed to get the spinnaker down in the squall. Quite exhilarating.:) It is scary knowing that if you fall overboard in the dark with the spinnaker up going eight knots the chances of being found are zero. Today has been a great day of sailing. We have probably averaged low sevens all day.
