We Need 240 Mile Days

With 1700 miles to go the boat would need to maintain a steady speed of ten knots in order for the boat to reach Santa Babara by September 6th. (That's when we are scheduled to arrive) Not looking promising. Meshach has no problem sailing those speeds, but you need wind and well that has not been the story, until now.

Right now they are sailing a speed of about 10 knots in 10 to 15 knots of wind from the south east. So even if they maintain this speed over the next week, which is unlikely they will still be short of the coast by about 100 miles. So it looks like we might just stay put a few extra days. They are expecting more wind according to the router, but we will have to wait and see.
