Virginia and Dennis Johns
have had a couple nice days of sailing without any squalls. Jibed so that we could start heading back north a bit while we continue to make westwards progress. Ran the spinnaker for part of the day on Sunday but winds too variable so changed to a wing-on-wing setup with the main out to one side and the jib out to the other as the wind is coming from directly behind us. This morning it is dying down a bit lower than we would like, hope to see it come up again. But, all is well aboard. Calm enough yesterday (all relative!) to bake bread. That was a nice treat. We continue to check in on the radio in the evening with the group of 4 boats that left the Galapagos at about the same time, with us leaving a couple days later than the others. We haven't seen any other boats out here yet, two of the others have had a siting of another cruiser.
More than half way there!
