Hello hello all you peoples on stable relatively dry land. Hope you are all well and enjoying a nice relaxing weekend. Our little world out here on IDEA got a little bumpy last night. Our breeze picked up to just short of 20 knots. With a wind angle at about 50 degrees from the bow of the boat (for all you nonsailors) and the seas about 8 - 10 feet from about the same angle IDEA is riding up the swell and pounding down the back side sending water over the decks and spray into the air. We're all a little damp and very salty. The boat itself is like a salt farm. Anyone fancy some atlantic sea salt for your dinner tables. We're going to start a side business exporting it.

There's very little else to tell out here at the moment. Since we've left Barabos we've seen on other boat, a few birds and had a passing pod of dolphin, but they didn't stay and play like they do very often. It's just us and the sea and the sky and our tunes.

Once again we hope you've all had a nice weekend.
