Beautiful day. Super smooth
Sunset 300 miles north of Puerto Rico
6 pm and very quiet
Sargasso Sea - The Sargasso Sea is home to seaweed of the genus Sargassum, which floats en masse on the surface there. The sargassum is not a threat to shipping, and historic incidents of sailing ships being trapped there are due to the often calm winds of the horse latitudes. This is also home to the huge North Atlantic Garbage Patch with a high concentration of non-biodegradable plastic waste. We would see the Sargassum floating in the Atlantic.
Everyone is ready for the Engine control room tour
Engine control room tour. Not allowed in the actual engine room. But, could see it on TV.

Now only 200 miles or so from Cape Hatteras but still in the Gulf Stream. The day started out warm but by late afternoon it was in the upper 50's which is cold when you spent the last 10 days in the 80's !
