Desperation is probably the only word to describe how we feel sailing through these Doldrums! Basically I could just write one word instead 100!

Anyway, things are going ok, I guess, sailing on speeds around 2 knots and happy when the heading is inside the 45 degrees from course….

The same for all of us though so we are trying not to complain too much and move forward. In any moment a gust will come, then another one and suddenly we are off, but we have to say these doldrums are being seriously painful. I guess we could average these with the ones in leg 2 (inexistent) and we would have two normal Doldrums…

For the rest everyone ok, just complaining about the heat… but all good on board MAPFRE.

I hope we can keep the fleet together and hopefully start sailing soon.

Best,

Xabi.
