Sojourner trip north - Day 1

Andy called me today around 10 am to give me their position. They had been downloading the gribs and also received the weather from NOAA I had sent them. 

Their position April 3, 10am
28° 48’N / 076° 40’W
Wind: Light from the N
Confused sea

They had a beautiful sail since they left Guana Cay in the Bahamas yesterday morning.  Beam reaching with 10-12 knots of wind. Around 7am this morning the wind got very light and the motor was turned on. Right when they left the Bahamas they spotted a whale! 

The plan is to sail straight to Annapolis if the weather is cooperating.
