1. We got a couple of those classic, tropical rain-baths;
2. We didn't need towels to dry out;
3. The wind around some of the squalls allowed us to make better time even if it made seas sloppy;
4. We actually outsailed a big wall of rain that looked sure to engulf us;
5. The miles to go are shrinking!
In spite of the things we've found tiring or tiresome, this crossing is one of those things we'll look back on with enormous satisfaction. But it will still be great to drop anchor and sleep a full night.

Hi Karen & Jim - I just stumbled onto your blog a few weeks ago and have found myself wanting to check in on you here from time to time... My husband and I signed up for sailing classes in June and one day hope to own a Dana.ReplyDelete
I was inspired to write when I just read that you hove to?! I understood that was impossible in a Dana? When you get to the Marquesas and have decent internet, I'd love to hear how you do it... Thanks for sharing your adventures & I'll cross my fingers for the wind gods to pay you a pleasant visit. Best, Kristina.
