Searching for wind

Ever since we started out the grib file (wind arrows for an area to give you predicted speed and direction) have been promising more wind in two days. We just never quite reach it, like a carrot dangling in front of our bow… Yesterday morning the grib showed a bubble without any wind ahead, so we decided to sail straight north in order to avoid it. The scheme worked, we avoided the dreaded calm, but it’s still very slow going (and not even in the right direction) doing about 3 knots in about 8-10 knots of SE wind…
