Officially 1 week at sea
We sailed through half the night with no wind and the engine on low, so it didn't have to work too hard. We were going at a slow 4 knots, but we were making progress. Today doesn't look too promising either, but hopefully by Wednesday the wind will pick up and we'll be able to make better progress. It was raining at 3am last night and time had suddenly sped up! We are one hour ahead from Aruba time. The forecasting for the coming days is an important factor to consider when planning activities. We must also keep an eye on the maritime traffic to make sure our activities remain safe and secure. The weather conditions can affect the maritime traffic, so having an accurate forecast helps us to plan accordingly.
