We've been going generally in the same direction since 14:00 yesterday. But we tacked at 10:30, with sails still balanced. We are sure happy by our lack of fuel consumption!

Saw 3 whales (1 breaching) today and spotting more and more flying fish.

Waters have been much calmer, no more storm cells so sunny skies, generally warm temperatures, and lower humidity levels. Life is good!

We rounded the point with strong winds at Cabo Manglares, very near the Columbia/Ecuador border, and around 22:00 we crossed into the waters of Ecuador!

We needed to tack west once again at 23:45 as on our southerly route we had cut very close to land to pick up a back eddy as a respite from fighting the normal counter-current. Winds were abating.

Today's position around midnight: N01°22'50" W079°03'15"
