Hi Richard, Wish we were with you! Alia, Carole, Jim & Olga are visiting here. How boring when one thinks of your adventures, but we are enjoying being together. We are all looking forward to when we meet with you again. Love
Trade Winds

For the fourth day, we are broad-reaching downwind in light winds (Force 3 -- 7 to 10 knots), under fisherman and poled-out genoa. The skies are nice and cloudy this morning (cloudy days outside in the tropics are much cooler than sunny ones).

The very light wind has picked up to Force 3 (7-10 knots), and we are running along nicely, under fisherman and poled-out genoa.

Ham at sea
Richard
Fri Sep 19 0:00:00 EDT 2008

The shops in the Canaries had a lot of Iberian hams for sale. This is salt-cured meat, which seemed like it would keep well at sea. So we hung one off the backstay and covered it with an old sheet to keep the sun off. Periodically, we cut a piece off. So far, the meat is still very good.

Too hot here for glogg, but hard tack and salt pork are certainly traditional :)
