subdued on board
As you can see from our position, we are making good headway south, with our 25 knots wind at 60 degrees apparent to the bow. Unfortunately this is making for a bumpy ride and everyone is a little quiet as we move through this. In about 150 miles, when we get to 10 degrees latitude we expect the wind to soften and things will become smoother, and slower. Last night David was in the middle of a fancy salmon dish when one particularly big wave sent the boat and David’s salmon flying. He saved enough of it that we had another very good meal. I knew it was good to have a food professional on board.
Thoroux’s Paddling through
For those interested, we are sailing with a triple reef and
jib reefed down to 100%.
I think the crew is having red meat withdrawl symptoms but handling it in good cheer.
