Hi, all is well on board Kite. We came through the last front with only small issues and now we have sunshine and 15-17kts… Upwind! On the exciting front, we may tack tomorrow afternoon. In all seriousness, it is nice to have a break from the changing conditions of the fronts. At times it was pretty full on. With the reefs in the main, I had to use the dinghy bailer to bail the water out of the main.
The goal in these fronts has been to preserve the boat and me and I think we did that well. Now all we need is some extra sleep and food.
The smoother seas this morning meant eggs for breakfast. I’ve also had a bit of a clean up down below. No doubt I will have time later to conjure up a bit of magic from the bag of freeze dried food for a delightful dinner.
