Worst Sailing Ever
After some 100,000 miles of sailing including once around the globe with "family, friends and strangers," two solos as far as South Africa and several Atlantic and Pacific crossings never have I experienced such a period of poor winds and miserable daily totals. During the last week as I press towards the northeast corner of Brazil my daily runs have been 156, 124, 126, 144, 131, 113, and 71 miles per day. I had anticipated averaging 161 miles per day. That is what Dodge Morgan averaged on this leg in his 1986 record setting Bermuda to Bermuda - fastest circumnavigation and the first by an American.
However despite it all I remain in good spirits knowing that winds will come.
