I set the twins last night just after dark and they work their magic hour upon hour. It almost feels like cheating given the conditions over the last few days.

I’ve been anxious to get them set but the cross-seas have been too much. Northwesterly and Southwesterly swell between 4 and 6 feet mixed in with the primary Westerly waves anywhere from 9 to 14 feet translates into a very serious pounding by breaking crests if one is not careful about getting the stern aligned to the breakers.

But now, however, only the primary swell is of any consequence and we tear downwind and East. If the forecast holds, we’ll have similar conditions for at least another 24 hours.

As long as that pesky Northerly swell keeps clear, it’s easy street for Seaburban.

    In weather like today having a fellow partner would make the difference of the world.

    Heavy weather conditions are great only when you have enough energy to enjoy it. I wish you the time of your life.

    Hi Bert, I came across your voyage on goodnewsnetwork.org looking for more positive and up-beat news in the world today. As we continue to try to isolate ourselves looking to conquer this extremely serious virus, you’re essentially isolated fighting the elements of Ocean Blue. I’m a surfer in Southern California and I’m always intrigued by extremely passionate individuals who take on these adventures, especially when it involves the ocean. I’m currently listening to some Reggae and enjoying a Pale Ale from our local brewery 🙂 Our Family is healthy and I’ll be working from home tomorrow, but will continue to follow your voyage rooting you on the whole way through. I wish you safe passage and pray that you will utilize all that you’ve learned to help you endure the many obstacles that come your way. You will make complete this voyage and I look forward to your future posts. Take care of yourself.

    Cheers,

    Bert,
    What an incredible journey you have set up for yourself!
    I find your reflection on the coronavirus to be incredibly insightful.
    Self isolation as a time to reflect on what we want to become, what legacy we choose to leave behind.
    To many that level of self introspection will appear daunting and even impossible.
    To truly examine our minds, behaviors, and motivations while holding them into the light through the prism of our souls is an exercise most would not have the courage to do.
    But I hope some will take up that challenge.
    Good luck to you!
