We got up bright and early but don’t rush to leave, I am still a strong believer that good preparation is one the biggest keys to successful voyages. So we check and recheck our systems and make sure the whole boat is shipshape for our next crossing. At 10.30am Mike hoists the anchor and I turn Guppy’s bow west, there is no wind behind the islands and so we slowly motor along until some wind comes. We continue sailing although slowly and rolling on some left over swell. For the first time in weeks we get some low hanging clouds and even a few drops of rain at night. It’s actually rather refreshing then annoying. Today continues to be slow sailing, but no one cares. On these longer voyages a day more or less doesn’t matter much. Everyone knows their shift and duties by now, so it’s rather relaxing and we’re all happy just settling in for a great time at sea.
