Finally the easterlies gave up and in the transition we had again to use
the Yanmar sail. Then around 4 this morning, the wind came in from the
SSW, as expected, and we are in now for a few days of tacking. Right
now, we are doing 150 on one tack and 275 on the other, which is a lot
better than I expected, with a long swell from the South.
At this rate, I expect to get to Manta on Friday, July 17th early in the
day. Long way away still, things can change. However, since the present
situation is the worse that we can get, dead into the wind with current
against us, we can only look forward to any change.
