Day 4

It has been a rough 24 hours with a stiff southerly wind and large confused seas. We did get a 10 hour sail out of it, but all hard on the wind so lots of heeling.

Seas are quieter now. We are motoring overnight on a southerly course to get out of the ITCZ, though we did clear the more convective area last night.

Position 2.35N 83.51W, motoring at 205 degrees, speed of 5 knots.
