It has been a wonderfully unexciting day here. Parts have had winds in the low 20s, others in the upper 20s. The seas have not built as much as I might have expected given the winds so while there is a bit of surfing, it isn’t rough. The boat is loud, however, with the singing hum of speed. The sun was out all day, and it is delightfully warm.
The code 5/mule is working well. I tried the staysail inside, but it destabilized the mule too much and didn’t seem faster on average. Otherwise, there are the usual boat checks and a few small tweaks here and there.
Fun and fast sailing.
