Not a bad 24 hours with the weather, quite clear skies with about 30 % puffy clouds that just hold a little more wind. Wind SE 18 - 22, swell running about 3 metres now, not quite from behind and with a beam slap way more frequent than we would like. Still flying double reefed main, jib poled to windward has been furled in and out that many times on this trip, not quite a set and forget passage, that is for sure.
|come on Ray, whats the matter?|
Skipper is doing more work on Ray our autopilot that has gone on strike, so hard to do much in these conditions, everything rolls everywhere, meanwhile Arnie is doing a fine job of steering in somewhat tiresome conditions.
