More spin tales on Sunday

Today was a day for making miles and we did a good job of that for most of the day under the fractional spinnaker.  In the evening, there were squalls, but none really strong or out of the wind range for the spinnaker.  The radar tracks them well.  Still, the tack decided it wanted a separation from the body of the spinnaker.  Of course, with the sail not connected at the tack, it spun around the sock down lines and thus wanted the extra attention of a traditional takedown.  With that sorted, we are back to making good miles with the Code 5, aka the mule.  Here's hoping the trade winds stay strong.
