After an uncomfortable night with strong winds (trysail!) we sit again
in the calm.. don't remember this part of the world being so wet and
grey in the middle of summer :-). It was real 'close the door' weather
and everything is encrusted in salt again.
We ripped the clew out of the main two nights ago, so maximum mainsail
is 1st reef and the screecher died between Cape Town and St Helena.
Being so underpowered doesn't really cause as much of a problem as
expected, because this leg has so far given us a lot of wind or none
whatsoever. Time to see a sailmaker.
Got this habit of watching movies - Waterworld made me crack up
laughing, really silly movie, but since Ascension Island we fully
understand that people kill for tomatoes :-).
