Mamosa's at noon

At 0800 yesterday morning, Wild Tigris passed the halfway point of this leg 955Nm from Salvador and St. Helena respectively. The occasion was marked with Mamosa’s before a delicious lunch of chili and ginger shrimp salad.

We finally ran out of wind at about five in the evening, furled sails and began motoring. Although the tranquility of sailing has been replaced by the monotonous drone of the motor, I think everyone would admit that it’s nice to be doing 8kts on target! We have 815Nm to Salvador and at this rate, would expect to arrive on the afternoon of the 31st. Hopefully we will be able to get a little more sailing done which may knock our arrival back to the 1st of Feb.
