Morning After

We limp along ENE at best hampered by a Southeasterly current that is embedded in an eddy of the Agulhas Current.

It blew 25-30 all night. A wonderfully consistent wind that we could make little use of. I felt it too dangerous to free the main of its storm lashings in the dark, the leftover mixed swell, and the newly generated southerly wind waves that couldn’t wait to join the party.

This morning brought much of the same minus the impressive westerly swell of yesterday. The forecast calls for the wind to lighten to the point where there is no wind left at all. Yet again we will be left windless and wondering from whence will the breeze spring up again.

    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.
