Not So On and On.
Tue 10 Dec 2013 02:26
Course: North nor’ east Speed: 1 knot
Wind: south east, F2 - light breeze
Sea: slight Swell: negligible
Weather: sunny, warm, and humid
Days run: 34 nm sailed (and drifted), 17 nm made good.
Unlike the previous day's run, with the wind all over the place, at least in the last twenty four hours the wind has been more consistent, in that there has been very little of it. Consequently the drifter has been the sail of choice and we have not gone very far at all. To make matters worse, I strongly suspect that we are pushing against a current which, in these light airs, has a significant impact on our progress. It is a good thing we are not in a hurry.
All is well.
