Andrew the middle of the north pacific, as we get sucked into the next big high. On the bright side, we have finally seen some ships - three freighters, two of which came within 1.2 miles. The 2nd we changed course for, as he was 884 ft longer than us! And finally, after hurting my eyes looking at every sunset for the past year, the other night I saw the green flash. cool. Last night we blew out the genoa halyard (why does stuff always happen at 3am!). As the spare halyard is not configured the same way. we don't want to run the risk of the big sail getting wrapped in the furler, so we have hoisted the smaller heavy weather jib. and you guessed it, we are now in light winds and could really use the big sail. maybe time to try the iron jib and head north, again. Finally (to get all the bad news out), the giant bag of peanut m&ms has run out. Another crisis to deal with. cheers, Team Mulan.
