First Morning

What a difference two years makes. Last race, we had a spinnaker up by this
point. This year we are beating or close reaching in pretty cold weather.
Largely uneventful other than leading life at a pretty sharp angle.

Dinner was cold chicken and fruits for those who wanted them. Folks are
getting used to the boat and the offshore routines, such as keeping the hot
pot filled.

No animal sightings.

We are rather farther north than the rest of the fleet. We are convinced
that they are heading toward light are and we are not. A couple of very
experienced boats are with us on this, so we are not feeling totally fringe.

Love to our home team!
