Approaching the half-way mark. Plenty of sailing this trip, some of it fast! Mostly motor sailing, or slow sailing around 5-6kn last night and this morning in light winds that more or less match the GRIB forecasts. Seas very calm but starting to notice an underlying long ocean swell beneath the local wave pattern. A 15kn puff alongside a lingering storm this afternoon had us charging under full sail at 10kn for a few hours.
Still no fish. Crew mostly had a slow day of sanding and polishing. Except HT, whose hand with varnish brush seems always in a blur.
