Young & Old Men of the Sea

25 June 2009 | 370nm SW of Union Hall
NW 5kt, fine, 1012mb & steady
Here is Max, to tell how it is for a sixteen year old:

So far we have covered over 800nm and I have experienced many different things, from 60 ft whales 50 meters away, to roaring winds and powerful seas. It took me a few days to get settled into 'life at sea', but as soon as I grew a pair of 'sea legs' I found it much easier to move around the boat to trim the sails etc. After yesterdays 8+ kts average boat speed, today has been an entirely different story the ocean has been a Millpond meaning we have had to motor, with all sails setting, from 1200 onwards. A big thank you to Granny for the excellent 'Pre-made meals' which have been lovely! (I think you should open a restaurant). We are just about to sit down to a nice Chili with a coleslaw salad.
