Day 2

Wednesday, May 18

Interesting day. it started out very much like yesterday, but with differences. Blue sky, and then sailed into a huge dark wall of clouds. Heaps of rain, but not so windy. But when the rain was over, it stayed very heavy grey overcast with lots of light sprinkles and drizzle. The biggest difference was this is when the wind picked up to 20 to 25 and stayed there for most of the day. Ok, so we went fast, we were wet, and the wind angle was good. We need to maintain a very northerly course in order to miss the island chain as we sail up and out of the Marshalls.

So now, the wind has stopped. It is running about 6 to 8 knots, so we are slow. Worse, the wind has veered north. so we cannot make passing Ailuk to port. We will sail as far north as we can, and then we will motor around the east coast when we get there. This should happen about midnight. Our hope is that the wind will return, so motoring is not necessary.

So, some challenges. We managed to talk to Janet of the yacht "Naviere" this morning. That was nice.

Our Position is: N 9 37.43, E 170 25.2. We send our best to everyone, and we will report again tomorrow. Good Night.
