SOG 5kn, Wind 15kn NE, very rainy
On a voyage of three weeks you can of course expect to encounter all kinds
of days. The calm, the sunny with steady winds, the rainy with fluky winds,
the stormy, and everything in between. You get the most out of the voyage
when you accept them as they come, and treasure them for what they are. The
sunny for their happiness, the rainy for their melancholy. The stormy maybe
for the physical excercise.
But the truth is, the sunny ones are a lot easier to treasure then the rainy
ones. Especially when fluky winds make you work on deck every half hour.
Today is such a day. What a good day to practice treasuring all things in
life, let that be the motto of he day. Fortunately there are good news too
to make it easier: we're half way there! Only 1500nm more to go. And my
french learning game for the iPad is finished. Tres bien!
