Bermuda to Newport - Day 2

The passage was easier today although we didn't sail much. Light winds required us to engine in order to make progress. While we try to avoid using the engine, it made for easy night-watches and better sleeps since the bunks were more horizontal than usual. Overall it was a beautiful day with little activity on or around the boat. I did see a container ship, our only vessel sighting, during my last night-watch. When not sleeping, eating or watching what's ahead, I have been reading and my captain spends his leisure time studying weather charts and reports we receive throughout the day via single sideband radio. By the day's end we did another 177nm so we're half-way "home".
