Even to the best of us…

I started the day with a minor sinus headache. Not a huge deal, I get them from time to time. What I haven’t had is a sinus headache while sailing in boisterous tradewind seas. By the end of the day not only was my headache still there, I had layered on top of it a good case a seasickness too. Yuck! Karen stepped up and did a double watch, and I’m feeling a bit better now.

The first part of the night was characterized by squally winds and rough seas. The wind vane is back in charge of steering, complete with her battle scars from our last trip. It’s doing a bang up job.

As we approach morning, the wind has settled to a steady 20 knots. A double reefed main and a reefed jib are driving us at 6 to 7 knots on a good course. Venus and Jupiter highlight the morning sky while I wait for sunrise.
