Beautiful July 4th, although no fireworks or hotdogs today. Good off the wind sailing all day, in steady 12-20kts of breeze. Isobars compressed creating a channel of wind to follow up the great circle route. We have past the halfway point and that combined with it being Independence Day, we celebrated with Mango ice cream which had been purposely placed next to dry ice to keep it cold and frozen. It worked, what a nice treat.

Water still 20.5 degrees C here in the middle of the Atlantic. Amazing how far the Gulf Stream makes its way out here.

Keeping pedal to the metal,

Hiro Maru out.
