Oct 15, 2010-Dispatch #7 from Indian Ocean-
Sent from African Radio Connection; we're now close enough to Africa to connect with them.
Heading WSW at 7.5 knots reaching on port jibe with a #2 genoa and a second reef in the main. The wind is from 123 degrees at 19-20kts. Sun is shining and sky and ocean are blue. Sailing is good and very fast. A positive current is helping.
The wind came back and we're flying along. 182 miles in the last 24 hours and we have a good chance of getting in on Tuesday.
