Day 11: Jibe ho, again

The seas have calmed considerably, the sun is out, and a white tropic bird just cruised past for a closer look at us, all the way out here, 1700 miles from land. Unfortunately, like yesterday, the wind has shifted to the E/NE so we had to again jibe to gain some northerly direction. The swell is more on our tail, though, which makes for a somewhat comfortable ride. No other news to report.

  1. I wonder what kind of bird that was that was so far away from land! We’ve had two marvelous days in the 70’s, but now it’s going to get HOT again–NOT looking forward to that!
