07 May Sunrise Moonset
Today might very well be the last of the Southern Ocean gales we tangle with. Our turn North a few days ago has not only headed us for home, but it has been keeping us out of harms way.
South and east the monster lurks. Stalking. We go NxE as fast as the sails can carry us. Today our paths will finally cross but with enough North under our belt, we will not see anything close to the worst of it. As well, we use the gradients to our advantage to maximize the benefit of distance gained.
The deceptive beginning to the day’s end is no longer new. The sun rises and a full moon sets in magnificence belaying what is yet to unfold. Fingers crossed the next time this happens, the day will end as it started.
