Florianopolis to Rio Grande Day 4

No change during the early hours as we continued motoring under clear skies with a slight sea and swell.

Just after 07:00 we had a brief spurt of wind. NNE 4, but it didn't last long.

At noon the wind was still NNE at F1-2. We continued to motor in slight seas with a moderating swell. We had expected a bit more wind from the east.
Noon run 102.8 miles. Rio Grande entrance 72 miles.

Conditions during the afternoon were quite pleasant with a lovely sunset and stunning evening sky.

Andre relaxed at sunset.

Later in the evening the wind backed to N and increased to F4. We interpreted this as confirmation that headwinds were on the way within a day or so.

Forecast for 8th March - 5th March
