23.57.108N 050.13.261W Most of yesterday was placid, motorsailing on a calm sea. We crossed the tropic of Cancer, picked a few flying fish off the decks, read, made bread, ate well. The wind this morning is on the nose, at 16-20, we've put a reef in the mainsail, and traded our large jib for the small one, and the engine is still engaged. Seas hovering around 10 feet. The tempurature is starting to chill, sunny with some cloud cover. More later...
