Friday, May 12, 2017, Day 20, Sailing from Antigua to Madeira

Today is our penultimate full day on the Atlantic for this voyage. We will reach Madeira sometime early Sunday morning, likely under the cover of darkness. Hard to say for certain cuz we are, you know, sailing.

Kirill and Yulia

Yulia and Kirill are hoping they can get the engine (that died early in the voyage) looked at in Madeira. After Madeira, they have about 1200 nautical miles to go to reach Corfu, Greece.

We had hoped to sail farther with Yulia and Kirill, but it is not to be. Their next landfall will occur too late for us to make it home before our vacation time ends. 🙁

We expect the wind to die sometime tonight. We will likely motor the rest of the way to Madeira.

Tonight after dinner, we thoroughly enjoyed listening to another diverse array of music.
At 6:57 p.m, we have 200 nautical miles to go.

Distance to destination (DTD) 200 nautical miles
