First night

We left St Martin at 10 this morning with beautiful conditions. Around 10 knots of wind in the nose, which is the best possible as if we had the wind with us we would not move.
We had again an electronic scare, with the sat phone not working. I spent the best part of two hours trying to figure it out and finally almost gave up by installing an Edgeport serial to USB driver and it worked.
Tonight, Karen is cooking brussels sprouts and steaks. Beautiful night with full moon. The seas are flat for me, a little bit to rough for Karen, but she is doing great.
If you don't hear from us, that will mean that we are having additional electonic problems. However, if you see our position moving, it means we are OK but just we might lose all means of communication.
To cut it short, we are doing very well and enjoying this first night at sea.
