We’re getting close now... It seems to be taking forever but these last 300 or so miles seem to be the longest we’ve had. With the difficulties from yesterday we’re taking things a little easier on the boat. We sailed on white sails all last night, making good time and saving the last, good spinnaker for the daylight hours when we can watch it closely and sail it carefully. With the tricky winds we’ve been having we didn’t want to risk losing our last spinnaker as we approach our final run to the finish line.
We’re consolidating our lead and first place position in our division. The sun is hot and winds shift, gusty, but generally in a good direction. The seas are easier to take as the waves are down a little but still squirrelly and difficult to drive in.
The blogger had difficulty working at the navigation station today as the heat and movement of the boat was making him nauseous, my apologies for the short entry today.
