Passage Seward to Yakutat
26 June 2017 | Gulf of Alaska, East of Kayak Island, West of Icy Bay
Monday, June 26
It is now Monday, June 26, and the beginning of our third day. The passage is going fine. A little cool in the mornings, but not a problem with our handy North Face jackets. It's being a nice uneventful trip - just the way we like it. We are sailing now, but have been motoring for most of it. The wind has just been too light, but now it has come up to a level we cause. Since the wind is from the straight west, and we are heading straight east, any wind automatically gets subtracted off of our boat speed. Of course, this means that we do need more wind to go direct downwind that to beat into it. Anyway, we have that now and we are moving right along. We have been slowing our pace a bit since we do not like to arrive at night regardless that we have 24 daylight. Between midnight and about three in the morning, there is a nice bright twilight.
Recap, the water is nice, the boat is working nicely, and we are enjoying our boat ride!
Thank you for reading, and we will hopefully be announcing our arrival early tomorrow morning.
Be Excellent to Each Other!
