At about 7N 127W in late morning, we turned south, to get into position for crossing the ITCZ's axis. The ESE wind (it's supposed to be NE) means our course is a beam reach at best, and very bouncy. We want to have a good angle on the SE Trade Winds, and going too far west would mean possibly beating into the wind all the way to the Marquesas, something we'd rather not do. So the spray's a'flyin for now! When we cross the Equator perhaps we can ease the sheets a bit for the long home stretch.
Short post today, too rough to type and then correct all the motion-induced mistakes.
