The south pacific ocean certainly has a personality – a bitchy one. Three days in and we are still feeling leery of her; unsure of what face she will show us next. Every time we think we she’s easing off on us and becoming more pacified, she slams another hard wave at our beam or gives a us good dousing of salt water in the cockpit. We’re not friends yet. All we can do is to keep trying.
We’re having a lumpy, bumpy sleigh ride out here, but we sailed 180 nautical miles towards our destination in the past 24 hours. Can’t complain about that at all.
482 miles to go!
