We normally reef the main so the admiral is more comfortable during her shift.
OK OK you are saying get back to your story. So the winds picked up like normal and we were flying along at 7.6 knots. Earlier in the day we were up to 8.8 knots of speed. I was looking for 9. As I mentioned earlier we have p to 1.5 knots of current so 9 knots should be easy to accomplish.
Just looked up.. we are at 19.7 knots of wind and we hit 7.6 knots of speed.
Enough for today except to say. Check out the tracker by clicking to the right. also check out Carol's blog. I'm sure it will give you a completely different perspective to the trip.
