It’s still way too wild to risk the iPad outside for a shot at a sunset photo. Luckily, headed due east, this is the view out the back porch.

Conditions are forecast to improve tomorrow morning. None too so soon for my tastes. The only good thing about today’s wind-over-current-mixed-breaking-swell-25-gusting-38 day is that the wind veered into the west. That meant dead downwind was east and it is east we need.

In fact, the only safe course is either dead downwind or close to it. It would be foolish in the extreme to reach in these conditions with the windvane driving. Even Sir Salty McSilent was startled awake for few seconds when a breaking crest hammered the starboard beam hard enough to send him flying to the port settee whereupon he fell asleep again almost before his eyes closed.

    That looks about right. When it’s hot out in the ocean, its foggy and wet on the Wet Coast. That means you’re on the right track, heading the right direction. Finally. Woohoo.
