The wind slowly built yesterday as we sailed wing and wing on port jibe down to 15 degrees N. Just before a great wahoo fajita dinner we jibed to Starboard and are now wing and wing making our usual half windspeed downwind in 15 kn of building easterly breeze. The sailing has been warm and pleasant with a light overcast sky and a waxing 3/4 moon to light up the night.
Noon to noon: 155nm 252d T.

The ride is so smooth now we have even been practicing our guitars.
