Nothing says “I own you” like the sea!
5:30 pm, March 12. We are passing some islands (isla sadros and Islas San Benitos) about 12 hours out from Turtle Bay on our second day at sea. We hope there will be a nearby cell tower to send this message. The nights have been rough and cold but the days are warm-ish and beautiful – we are 20 miles out with 10 to 15 knots of wind. We are sleeping in 3 hour shifts. Sea sickness is at a minimum thanks to meds. The sea is like a giant washing machine – choppy, tossing us up and down, side to side. Wind waves at 4 ft on top of a 5 foot swell. We are sailing (not motoring) and making up to 6 or 7 knots! We have not had to touch the sail all day. She is staying the course and so are we. Please take note: the world does not stop moving, no matter how much you may want it to…especially on a boat. Ho hum and a bottle of rum, D & H Sent from my bionic phone
It’ll be a well deserved few Rums (if there is any left) when you hit terra firma at Turtle Bay.
You had me at rough cold nights, yikes!
WooooHoooooo!!! You made it!!! Glad the sea sickness pills did their job!! Xoxoxox
Sounds like Poseidon took the day off, which made for a great day for you… Or you regularly pray to him and kill a goat weekly to keep him happy.
