Oct 15, 2010-Dispatch #7 from Indian Ocean-

Day 15; 17.57.098S 68.47.467E

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.

Sounds like you're flying ... nice 24 hour numbers. I hope it is all comfortable sailing from here on in.

I'm checking in with a group gathering on Madagascar's west coast getting ready for their jump to South Africa together. They are leaving either today or tomorrow for their leg south.

Enjoy your passage.
