Underway

We have ben underway for several days from Nuku-Hiva. The winds have been very light and midday it has been very hot. With the cap shrouds and the forestay not yet replaced we have been babying the rig. This has been frustrating as some days we have only made 59 NM. But as Davyd always reminds us: Err on the side of caution.We have gotten much better at light air sailing. In only 8 or 9 knots of wind we are able to get Reboot up to 4 knots SOG. Not bad.Fair winds and following seas 🙂

With 180 nm to go (about 2 more days) we experienced the strmgest winds this trip: 25 G 30. This has kicked up the waves. We are really rocking! We got pooped today. One minute I was dry, next wet from head to toe! Ha Fair winds and following seas 🙂 Please note your reply is limited to 160 Latin characters or approximately 135 for non-Latin characters.

After 23+ days of sailing we are finally west of LA (and 2510 nn south.) Just as how many new Caribbean sailors are surprised to find the Islands well East of the U.S. mainland we did not appreciate how far east is the exit from the Panama Canal. it is actually raining rather than the normal light drizzle. This is the first time in months that I have put on foulies. They are quite warm in this climate. Unlike the Atlantic and Caribbean so far the rain has not been accompaned by strong winds. The waves do increase giving a bumpy ride. Right now I am dealing with the wind shifts rain always brings.
