Day 91 - Sailing dead upwind

  • Feb

    February 8, 2009 - Tacking dead upwind trying to get past Rio. To go into the high deep enough to get a good tack north would be many miles seemingly sideways. At least the skies are blue, the clouds are fluffy white, the temperature is warm to hot. The boat sails well.
