Position at time of writing:
Not much to report today except that the seas are still very lumpy! Last night it was difficult to sleep; Will and I lay uncomfortably in our aft cabin cave for five hours as Hydroquest rolled and surfed down waves. The waves weren’t huge, but just short and steep – rhino waves.
All continues to go well on board. The seas settled out for a bit this afternoon and we did a sail change – from starboard tack with poled out jib to wing on wing – and then we changed the sails back. The wing on wing would take us on a course too far south whereas right now we think we need to be trying to gain as much westerly direction as we can.
My birthday party has been postponed again until tomorrow. Hoping for a bit of a steadier sea!
Time to go listen to the net. Nice to hear so many other voices 🙂
