This morning, just 48 miles from the equator, our wind disappeared. It had been a subdued night of sailing filled with stars - great for sleeping - and we were able to continue south. This morning after a brief but torrential warm tropical rain, the wind simply died. Now we watch the horizon for a distant squall, hoping it'll breeze by and give us a push as we drift north (gasp) by west.
At 5/25/2012 and 22:02 UTC (GMT) our position was: 00°48.10'N / 171°57.53'E.
We were traveling 291T degrees true at 0.5 knots.
