After a cold and drizzly night, with very light wind, we are now sailing in the sunshine (true, with lots of clouds too, but there’s sun), and feeling pretty good. We’re sailing west at 4.5 kts, which is better than we were expecting given the forecast (now at 6.2 kts, as we sail under a cloud). Most of our division is ahead of us, but we aren’t letting that get us down.
It turns out that Paul Carson is a sail-trim and driving fool. He can usually manage to squeeze a good fraction of a knot out of any difficult situation. The photo shows Paul at the helm, taking us towards Hawaii.
