My blisters are shrinking and the weather seems to have settled. I hope to leave on wendsday.

This upsets many peaple. They tell me that the trade wind does not start to blow before the end of november when the ARC starts. That is not so. They are wrong and ignorant. This is whats happens when people mowes in gropes like the ARC. They do not study the fundamentals. The trade blows the whole year. It moves north and south with the sun. In fact it is much better to leave now when the trade is still upp here becouse then you follow the trades south and can take advantage of them all the way. The picture is from The Admiralitys Lifeboat Chart showing the upper and lower limits of the trade. Click on it two times to enlarge it.
