Aloha Westward Fans:
556 miles to go
What a difference a day makes!
Last night we tacked to starboard after weeks of port tack and have been able to head directly to LA. The computer shows 1 day of good sailing, miles of no wind, and final days of good sailing. We hopefully have reserved enough fuel to handle most of the no wind days, we'll see. This morning we shook out all of the reefs and have had a beautiful double headsail beam reach. We expect to hit the light stuff tonite. All are on deck enjoying everyones' company and not dinner preparations are under way.
We all hope to bathe in the blue pacific in the middle of the no wind area so we do not continue to stick to our clothes.
All's well, just leave the light on for us.
Arrival prediction will take place when we break into the westerlies and remember Roger has to work on Monday.
