Day 73 - Quick Update

  • Jan

    1725utc 50/41s 95/44w, 10.6 knots @ 122T, staysail and 2 reefs in the mainsail, sea reducing, cold, blue sky with squalls from time to time, reaching. Got two naps in this morning, transferred fuel from main tanks to buffer tank for the next week. Weather should be consistent for next 24 hours then perhaps lighter wind.

    I read President Obama's Inaugural Address. It was brilliant, and I recommend it to all.
