Bill (KI4MMZ) is home. The operation removed 5+ lbs. of metal from his body. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers. The wind has shifted NNE (Rule 3.) We gybed to the weak side and ran for several hours wijhout incident. We gybed back at dusk so we would not be running on the weak side in the dark. We are still making progress but not as much. Fair winds and following seas 🙂 Please note your reply is limited to 160 Latin characters or approximately 135 for non-Latin characters. Sent via Inmarsat. The mobile satellite company
