Day 2 – Gambia to Cape Verde

We are still making good progress at an uncomfortable angle. Life happens at about 17 degrees from even and is very wobbly, it may sound like nothing but it makes simple tasks very complicated. We are trying to keep the energy level as high as possible reading, telling stories and looking at the waves but we are accomplishing less than normal. That said, we had another good run in the last 24 hours covering 170 nautical miles. We expect to land in Mindelo very early on Friday morning.
