Congrats to Valykrie on an epic run. Well done. MIles found some legs yesterday and pulled off an Epic afternoon run. For the first time it was 'like the brochure' as we have been saying. Trade wind cloud streets of fluffy bits of cumulus and ripping 20 knots winds. MIles flew her kite and ate up some great distance direct to Hawaii. Special thanks to Gus' wife for her pirate set up- we had a blast as we sat in the cockpit together for the first time in days and enjoyed becoming official newfoundlanders. This was our view as the sun fell last night- the only down part is that then comes the onslaught of squalls. Squalls make an already scary event of driving at night a bit more terrifying, but we have all learned a huge amount in how to manage it. These days, Miles reefs or double reefs its main, douses the kite and rolls a bit of headsail out, we are slower, but we are safer. It really is beautiful out here now. Today's task- planning a path around Darby. We might be out longer, but we all know you'll understand. See you soon!
