We sailed form anchor this morning with a light southerly breeze, a fair wind, and it didn’t take me long to have the jib poled out and Sylph running wing on wing. The day started overcast but soon cleared, the sun shining for the afternoon. The forecast looks good so with a little luck we might make good time to our next stop, Valparaiso, 250 miles away.

All is well.

Bob Cat:

I can tell from the rolling and the gurgling, hissing noise outside that we must be at sea again. Better make sure I am well rested, never know what is going to happen next … zzzzzzzzzzzzzz
