For those who are paying attention you will notice that today's position is actually heading back towards Annapolis. This is not a mistake, do not adjust your computers. After only eight days at sea I have decided to abort my attempt to complete my circumnavigation. I am just finding it too difficult. I have been living on old Sylph now for ten years and single handing for eight of those years. Single handing is not something I aspired to but was something that happened to me (just another boring sailing story), on the other hand I have found having crew oftentimes is worse than sailing by myself. Anyway bottom line is I am heading back to Annapolis via Bermuda, there most likely to swallow the anchor. I think it is time to move on and do something else.
But right now there is no wind, I have dropped the sails and we are drifting waiting for a breeze to return.
I think I am going to be a Bookstore cat after all. Now there's a thought to sleep on.
All is well (mostly).
