Galapagos passage day 1
21 March 2012 | 30 52'S:80 19'W, Pacific ocean
We are sailing now, in nice conditions and have logged 192 miles in 24 hours since our departure from Juan Fernandez. The spinnaker is flying its colors, all crew are wearing happy faces, the puke buckets are dry, and we can walk across the cabin without holding on to something (most of the time). It's a great day to be sailing! We brought all tools to the table to combat seasickness, first by obtaining a few doses of Stugeron from our super friends on Spirit of Africa, which is a very popular anti-nausea anti-histamine medication not available in the USA for some reason. We did our internet research on the drug and called our doctor, it's good stuff in moderation. We also put Zia and Kati in a land cabin the night prior to departure so the meds could get started without the rocking the anchorage was still experiencing. It works, all are doing well. We have great conditions, 15 to 20 knots from the SE, forecast to remain the same for days, and moderate sea swell. Onwa rd!
