Tradewind Sailing

A large wall of water gave our captain an urgently needed bath early in the morning and unfortunately washed our visiting birdy over board.
The sun rose at around six and we continued to enjoy the perfect tradewind sailing. The partly cloudy sky gave us some relief from all the sunshine. Our etmal at noon was a very good 175nm!

Hydro- generator and solar panel cover our electricity needs, general maintenance work was low and we enjoyed each others company as well as Doug’s delicious dinner.
We are almost done converting Ellen to a beer drinker (who could say no to a Carib in the hot sun) and are worried that she might lose all her Pinot Grigio friends at home…

The sun set at 6:30pm and we continued steering after North Star and Big Dipper on our way north. Sailing does not get much better than this.
