Day 105 - Happy Birthday!

  • Feb

    1830 UTC, 24/45N  39/24W , 9.1 knots, @3450T, staysail, 2 reefs in mainsail, hard on the wind, as always. Sadly, forecasts look even more difficult, as the high that we have been going to meet to get some boost from the backside, is only going to be in position, as they say in baseball, for a cup of coffee, before moving on, and another high comes in from Nova Scotia area, to present adverse winds, not favorable winds.

    Sunny today, blue sky, barograph at 1024mb high.

    My mom is having an early birthday celebration today, spoke with my sister Sarah who is in from San Francisco for a visit. Happy Birthday Mom!
