No updates from Richard yet today. I did ask him yesterday if he was able to sleep given the seas. He said yes he was sleeping decent. I have not gotten any delorme position updates since last night. We have been seeing some intermittency some times which we expect is due to the position of the In Reach unit to visibility to the sky.

Richard just rebooted the Delorme unit and now I got an update. He also said that he just put the Starboard bird back in to ease some of the roll. This will slow him down about a little but make things much more comfortable.

Not trying to make it a competition although Richard and I have discussed my choice of a DD vs a KK. Richard is very much looking forward to trying to convince me that a KK should be in my future when I join him in Panama. I'll have no choice but to listen to him since he'll be my Captain for a month or two while we make our way through the canal and head north.

Note: You are correct when you say Richard is doing something few would have the cajones to do and for that reason I will be listening intently to everything he has to share with me during our time aboard together.

At 26N he seems several hundred miles north of the westward flowing north equatorial current.

Diesel , If you'd like to discuss your boat I don't think this is the right thread for that. Start another and perhaps others and I will give two cents worth when there is time.

For the rest who are interested here is Dauntless's last 24 hour data. From 1400hrs to 1400hrs distance run 141.8 avg speed 5.8 rpm 1500 fuel rate 1.4 gph. 287 nautical miles from puerto de la restinga and 2193 to Barbados.

Got a message from Richard saying Both birds are out. Speed is slowed to 4.9 with birds out. Rolling is not so bad so we will pull birds for night time. Caffesport, thanks for getting his morning updated post. I could not get to the computer till now to post.

Thanks for the updates. I'm not very familiar with the delorme. Do you need to own one and be logged in in order to follow Dauntless' journey or does it work similar to LiveShip where you can follow vicariously?

Lou that's coastal explore. My nobletec laptop is getting too old so I made a switch. It's not perfect but I'll put it to a test shortly.

Planning to arrive soon in Canary with my trawler, I am happy to read news about Dauntless At Sea ' adventures and cruise. Very positive attitude, far from romance and marketing from boatbuilders! Sailing from the Netherlands, I know as everybody here on this forum what rough sea can be...
Quality of diesel, fuel filtration, stabilization, engine, propeller, reliability is a question of survival!

One more time, " bon vent, bonne mer!"

Day 3 report from Richard:
Day 3 133nm, 24:00, 5.54kt 25°14.066n 25°07.124 Switchd fuel tank, ea 24hr Wx sct Sc7+ 72°47°76° 04517g25 sea NE 3-10' 1500rpm 5.5 227°
He also experimented with the birds in and out. He determined that with the following seas the birds are not making much difference so I believe he left them out of the water.

Roger I'm going to let you handle the updates as I have a boat to prep and I'll be off the grid for the next month.
