Daily Run: 119 miles

I was very careful last night in setting up the Hydrovane to give me course of 265T, but it would seem that the wind backed slightly to push me further south than planned. I have now changed course to 270T. Any course less than 270T made Luna Quest sail a little on the jibe.

The fewer squalls have calmed the seas a little and in the 20-knot winds, the boat's motion is less prone to violent lurches that could be dangerous to gear and body. I spent some time sitting in the cockpit yesterday enjoying the sunshine and observing Neptune's army of soldiers march by at a rapid rate.
