March 20, 2014 Into the Doldrums

130 mile day yesterday. Winds lightening up and we are close hauled under full working sails, ghosting along nicely. Looks like the ITCZ has shifted to the south a bit, we might still run through it around 3 degrees north latitude. Had some squalls last night, early this morning which gave us a nice lift and washed some of the salt off the sails and decks! Hot and humid as we near the equator.
