Position: 18º 4.458′ S 53º 48.438′ E
The sea state has calmed way down and we are now in the most ideal conditions that we’ve seen in this ocean. The wind has picked up to around 18 knots, swell around 1.5m.

The kids are a bit stir-crazy, which is par for the course at day 2. After lunch Vick is going to read Story of the World, and that should settle things back down.

We added a day to the passage by keeping our sails shorter (to prevent flogging) so we expect to arrive on the morning of the 11th.

All is well.
