ETA at 5knts 14:16 7th Apr.  398 miles togo
Wind E 4/5

Passed the northern tip of South America yesterday afternoon – Punta Gallinas.  I wonder if it has a naff signpost like the ones at Lands End and John o groats with New York 1955, Auckland 8033, Edinburgh 4679, Athens 5985, Cape Town 6717.  I suppose it wouldbe in kilometers not miles anyway.  Would the Columbian drug barons have it removed on the basis it is giving away important market information?

Well offshore at the moment in the hopes of continuing the passage in near perfect conditions.  There is about 5 knots more wind due closer to the coast tomorrow.
