Day 4: Boobies aboard

The computer has revived itself, at least for now, which is nice because it’s much easier to type out updates on a keyboard than old-school texting the 160 allowable characters on the InReach device. The confused seas from the previous day calmed down and we had a good day of sailing yesterday. The 1-2 kt current in our face, however, is definitely slowing us down and will likely add another day to our passage.

We had our first avian hitchhikers, two red-footed boobies. They showed up early in the afternoon and liked it so much they spent the entire night perched on the bow pulpit. Well-rested and hungry, they finally took their leave this morning.
