Day 3

A mixed day. We did get about 10 hours of sailing, however the rest has been motoring and fighting currents so moving no better than 5 knots.

We are very much in the middle of the ITCZ tonight, so we have thunderstorms all around us and bumpy confused seas. None of this I would describe as pleasant.

We are continuing our course south of the rumb line to try to exit the ITCZ. It looks like it will take us longer than anticipated, having to make southing all the way to 2 degrees north before turning towards the Galapagos. This likely means about 24 more hours of motoring at least.

Other than that how was the play, Mrs Lincoln?
