Good Prospects

04 February 2018 | 330 Miles SSW Cape Horn
2:00pm Sunday 4th February 2018 ( UTC-5 ) Yes I did let things get away last night or should I say early in a cold wet rainy windy sloppy Sunday morning. The wind had backed round to the South West and at the strength I was having a reasonably comfortable ride and even if I had changed tack or direction it may have imposed unnecessary strain on the rigging; or so I told myself as I snuggled deeper into my warm dry cosy bunk. From around 6:00am I started to get a grip but to little avail as the substantial slop was throwing the light breeze every which way, given a kick now and again by the fully unfurled jib. As the day wore on the breeze lessened and it appears I have quite a few of the daylight hours left to do the necessary desalination in comparative calm. There is another blow coming, forecast no stronger than the last but more from the North which should forgive some of my slackness this morning and yes for days now the longed for South West change is still forecast for late Wednesday.
