BVI-Bermuda - Day 5

Position: 27° 00.421 N, 064° 32.869 W
Weather:  Dry, calm, fine
General Comments: Nothing!  No ships, no birds, no flying fish, we are on our own here.  A little more Sargasso seaweed; we seem to be sailing off the edge of the trade winds.  Currently under screacher about 110 degrees off the wind.  A nice gentle motion.  However wind is dropping (currently around 8kt true).  We know we'll soon be experiencing shifty and still declining winds (and Kyle is not going to like that).
Progress: Yesterday we made 127 nm, So far on this trip we have travelled (through the water) 504 nm, and have 324 nm (straight line) to go. 
Estimated Arrival: No Change in expected arrival time - 14th May.
