Day 3: Transatlantic Passage

Atlantic Ocean---Wind! Finally our sails are full and we are going down wind at 5-6 knots. It's nice after 18 hours of motoring. I wrote the "Dear Dave" post and cried. Then slept about 1-1/2 hours. I read a lot and tried to stay out of the way. Gosh, it's only day 3 and I can see how all this would get to you. I must keep my attitude up. It is so similar to running a marathon mentally...and I'm only at about mile four!

Nightwatch: I thought my IPod charged from my solar charger but I only got three songs and it died. Although I love music on watch, I am determined to be okay alone with my thoughts for four hours in the middle of the night.

Video Diary Day 3: Hi, this is Edee Dalke on Sailing Yacht Juno it's day 3 of our transatlantic crossing. On December 1, 2010 and we are close to latitude13and the good news is what you see behind you which is our sails full of wind! We have caught the Trade winds. The Yankee and the 150 are out. We are doing about 6 knots and as long as this keeps up we will be doing just fine. Go fast."
