DAY 34, HUNDREDS ENJOY THE RIDE
11 May 2012 | On the way to the Caribbean
A treat! Since last night when I 'went to bed' the wind has steadily blown from the ESE without pause at about 10-13 knots. The boat slices through the water at about 4-5 knots with the jib catching the direct-off-our-stern wind, the main rests its weary threads. Hundreds of Gooseneck barnacles hang onto the bottom with, I sure, the greatest of joy and with nary a thought that they may be impeding progress. Another hundred or two and we all might come to a grinding halt, or perhaps more to the point, a grinding slow. But for now, all enjoy the celebration - even the sun has seen fit to join in.
