Dany II...conditions are still pretty much today with a large SW swell & wind chop...the wind is starting to drop more into the 20kt. range, & looking at our grib charts etc., we should be getting into the 15knt.s...some clouds today, keeping it comfortable below...now, instead of being coated in red dust, we're now totally covered in salt...can't seem to win!...at least we're making good head way toward our destination of the Maldives...the auto pilot spit the dummy a while ago, but we've managed to get it going again...with over 700 mi. to go, we really don't want to have to hand steer all the way!...fortunately, before we left Salalah, we were able to do a book trade, so we've got lots of new reading material to keep us entertained between watches...the flying fish continue to commit suicide on board & we're continually going around cleaning up the carnage...we've had very little traffic so far, but we expect to see more as we get closer to India...stay tuned...D2 & crew
