Riding the Bronco Again

In the night the wind headed us so that we are close hauled again, and builds gradually in strength. It was a cold and damp night with some fog patches and drizzly rain. Just before sunset we change down to the working jib and tuck two reefs in the main. 8am this morning 4th reef goes in to the main, but shortly thereafter the sun poked through the clouds. By 1200 the wind is up to a good force 5 to 6 from the Northeast and we change down to the No2 Yankee and staysail. Charging along and leaping over the steep head seas again. This has been a very windward passage all-in-all!

Karel cooked up some of the Albacore ala Thai on spaghetti last night which was delicious. The rest is cut up in bags in the freezer. We aren't going to do much other than sanwiches tonight given the conditions. Forecast is for improvement tomorrow, fingers crossed. The atmosphere is drier now and a little warmer at least, and we are making great progress. Not much sea life around - not even flying fish.
