Arrived Sitka today

Arrived in Sitka this morning. Took us the expected 3-1/2 days. Ended up sailing in light air most of yesterday and last night to conserve fuel as we hadn't intended to motor the whole way.
Sitka welcomed us this morning with rowdy conditions and boisterous seas, but we were happy to arrive before a long low pressure system takes over. Ginger survived and is quite happily sleeping away next to the cozy heater, glad to have a still home once again. Crew all good, fed and watered.
Lots of memories on this simple 3-1/2 day passage of times not that long ago and the many many watches Laurence and I stood alone. It's still a bit freaky at night...
Time for bed.
