Dany II...things are continuing to improve out here as we continue on our way to the Maldives...only 551 mi. to go...winds are more WSW & we're reaching in 15-20 knts., on a cours of 120T...it's been quite qrey, but no rain yet...there's not much happening to break the monotony, so we take turns camping out in the companion way to keep an eye on things, or crawl back into a bunk to read some more...we're still feeling like marbles in a box with the eratic movement caused by the somewhat confused seas...the winds are perdicted to get lighter as we continue S, so we're hopeing we'll be able to keep up our speed...we still  have 2 reefs in the main & jib, so it should be possible...stay tuned...D2 & crew
