Good sailing during the night left some disappointment when the wind died later today.
At the moment there is lots of motion in the sea but very little movement ahead. Getting much done, for instance writing is difficult with the constant motion – the log has been written in just brief starts. It will get much easier when further into the Pacific with steady winds blowing.
Oatmeal again for breakfast and fresh pancakes later.
It has been too rough to use the hand water maker and so today’s rain collection off the boom was a bonus for the fresh water tanks. Each day is spent keeping prepared for the next gale in these latitudes; further North will hopefully provide more relaxed sailing.
