XO woke me for watch. Of course 30 min early. We call this watch “dawn patrol”. Up side is you get to watch sunrise. Down side is it has only been 4 hours since your previous watch so sleep is at a premium. Thanks XO!

It is 4:30am local time and I am on watch. The ride tonight has been aweful and my back hurts from trying not to fall out of bed. I feel like I have not slept but Rookie says I was cutting wood. A flying fish just landed on deck. XO brought it into the salon to show off his fishing skills. It went overboard before he could make a mess. The water temp has been a constant 81.5*F. As the air temperature varies between 77*F and 88*F we get a lot of light rain at night. Tonight was no exception.

I am standing mid-watch. Although overcast the moon is shining through and we can see occasional stars. Reboot is making 6 knots and rocking gently in 3 foot seas. We are under the influnce of the south equatorial current. Last night when we were drifting the bow was pointed east (toward the current) while we drifted with the current (west). Wild. Today I realized that the weather is similar to the Gulf Stream. Perhaps that is because the conditions are similar – a flow of warm water with cooler water on both sides. It only took a week to figure it out. I am so quick! The Boobies continue to ride along. Rookie has wacked them when they land on the solar panel. They have moved to the bow. B. F. Skinner would be proud of them. I can hear their calls as they search for dinner. My watch is over but I am wide awake so I am standing Davyd s watch. The two principal states on a long passage are boredom and exhaustion. Davyd had an exhausting watch early this morning. This is my way of glving
