Northeast Trade Winds /北東貿易風

Report from Doug

March 13th, 9:37 a.m. Japan Time

17.7752 N 144.5852W, Course 221°

It seems we are finally in the trade winds with kinder seas and more moderate and consistent winds from northeast and east.  We are currently on a broad reach (port) making about 6.5 knots.

We turned off the refrigerator today as the battery drain was too much and the remaining “fresh” food was not so fresh.

Currently charging the battery bank with the generator with the hope that going forward the combination of solar and hydropower will provide all the electricity we will need.   

Dougより報告

とうとう貿易風の適度で安定した北東の風でやり易い海の中にやってきました。ブロードリーチ(ポート)で6.5ノットで航行中。

今日は船内の冷蔵庫の電源を切りました。生鮮食品の残りも古くなってきた事だし、充電池の消耗も大きいので。

只今発電機でバッテリーを充電中。今後、太陽光と水力発電で全てを賄える事に望みをかけて。
