It has been another short hop today. I tried to sail for a bit and got up to 3.5 knots for a short while, but then the wind dropped off to a flat calm, so, at two thirty, I handed sail, started the engine, and motored the remaining sixteen miles to today's destination, Sointula Harbour. I have just had dinner, and will go for a walk shortly to have a look around before it gets dark. If I like what I see I might stay another day, otherwise we will get under way in the morning. The forecast is for a favourable wind tomorrow, so that will no doubt influence me to keep on moving.

All is well.
