We're making water today so I took the opportunity to send this. All are well. We are now 10 days into the trip and have covered 1200 miles, an average of over 100 miles per day. Not bad! Still plagued with small failures but we work through them as we can. There's never a dull moment. We crossed single digits in latitude, also an accomplishment.

Very hot and humid. Very. We're all a bit tired of the rolling: it makes everything difficult. Just moving about the boat is difficult to say nothing of working, cooking, or sitting. We've had our first squall. At the end of Chip's trick, the bottom dropped out for 15 min, but the boat needed the washing.

Chip has the 2000-2400 watch, Conni has 0000-0400 watch, and I have the 0400-0800 watch. I get to see sunrise each day, and some are quite spectacular. We pitch a half-dozen flying fish off the deck each morning. We've seen no other vessels of any kind in several days. It's quite lonely!

I'm still trying to get the spinnaker pole head unstuck and its a slow process. I hope that we can get it done.
