Beautiful wind. F4 on the starboard quarter pretty much all the way across. She clocked five and a half knots through the water at one point. Not bad for an old (and pretty) tub.
Going home tomorrow is going to be a different experience. F4 to 5 on the nose, wind over tide.
A little scared. Mostly excited. Glad we've got Ben aboard to help.
I'm lying in my bunk listening to the wind slapping a halyard against the mast. Can't hear it above deck so can't work out how to stop it.
Which is fine. I love the noise. It's like the ticking of a clock. Hypnotic.
This is exactly where I want to be right now.
