Dany II....another day in pirate alley...finally, D2 is doing what she does best...sailing!!...yeah!..the wind has finally swung around more to the S & we're moving along effortlessly @ 7+ knts...we don't know how long it will last, but we're certainly enjoying it while it lasts!...we now have 160 mi. till we reach Salalah, & won't slow down till we get there...unfortunately because of the recent good weather, the pirate alert in now high for the Gulf of Aden...boy, will we be glad to have this leg behind us!...it's also cooled down considerably, making life much more comfortable...so far, we've only had 1 ship today, so not much going on except a hotly contested scrabble game...still keeping a good look out tho...bye from D2 & crew
