So much for the wind slackening.....it perked up significantly overnight,
giving us a bit of a sleigh ride, and required hand steering for a bit since the
Hydrovane decided we had too much sail up, and I did not fancy turning upwind
and into a very big cross swell, to reef the main. It was safer to run downwind
to take the steam out of it until the gusts moderated. Well over halfway now,
and coasting along under double reefs, we are making decent headway. Bermuda not
yet in sight, though!
