Dany II ...on the move!...wether condition are still much the same with SW winds @ 25-30knts., with tripple reefed main & jib, we're continuing to average 7-8knts. on a course of about 100T...right now we're fitting between the swell & waves, so it's reasonably comfortable as long as we don't try to move around too much..which involves doing the D2 shuffle!...trying to time foot placement with grabbing hand holds is a challenge!...at least we're making good head way E...righ now we have 866mi. to go to Uligan, the notrhern most atol in the Maldives...not much else happening out here, the fish are safe for another day, & there's no chance of a scrabble game today...the flying fish & sheerwaters are enjoying the conditions...we do get the occasional flying fish on board, but with D2"s slanted slick decks the don't stay for long...cheers!...D2 & crew
