In thr Big Blue Ocean

Valis has begun the race!
We crossed the starting line at 11:48, three minutes late. We weren’t trying to be late, it just happened. We are now tacling out the main ship-channel, trying to stay in the deep water because of the seas (which aren’t very big — yet). The wind is a useful 15kts from the west. Our goal is to get ourselves 100 miles west so we can pick up the steady north wind.
We have started our watch rotation.. We stand watch for three hours, then get 4-1/2 or 6 hours off. During our off-watch time we cook, clean, help sail as needed, repair, and if there’s time left over, sleep.
The crew is well, and we are looking forward to a great passage.
More later, Paul
