Position: 40º 49.05′ N 69º 15.21′ W
We lost our wind entirely today. It’s been 12 hrs of motoring already, and we probably have a dozen more before the wind fills in. Match that with a 1.7 knot counter current, and you have some real slow going. We used the time to make power and water though. I should probably be glad we had so much time because, in these cold cold waters, the output is about half what it was in the tropics.

That said, we are smelling nostalgic scents on the breeze, and the fishing boats look normal for the first time in six years.

all is well.
