Many Moons

Its been many moons since Seaburban has been close reaching toward her destination as opposed to getting out of the way of something. Not since PJ was aboard has the motion and sound aboard felt like this.

Happily, wind and swell conspire to help as opposed to hinder. The SW swell pushes us forward as the wind pulls.

The short-term goal is to recapture some of the south we were forced to give up when beam reaching in the cresting 12-15′ westerly swell mixed with the remnants of the northwesterly 8-12′ wind waves and 30+ knot winds became a bad idea. Long-term the goal is east, east, and more east.

The nearly flat, pancake-like sea means we are not rolling. How very strange it feels to have the boat rock-solid on her feet while I wobble around the cabin and on deck expecting everything to be somewhere else when I reach for or try to step on it.

Tomorrow the forecast calls for much of the same but on starboard as opposed to port tack. All this north-south makes for an interesting way to get east!

    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.
