21 Feb Grateful
It is a glorious morning as Seaburban, Salty, Port and Starboard, and I prepare for the coming 48 hours. The forecast looks grim and it looks as if the Agulhas Current has thrown us a curve.
Sunshine and swell with only a single component have allowed us to finish preparing and clearing the deck in peace. Down below there remains but a few minor items on the heavy weather checklist to tick off. I am more than grateful for the break from yesterday’s washing machine ride.
We have gybed away from the storms track along 46S and are headed ENE. We have gathered all the nothing possible in the last few days and, our hand dealt and cards on the table, await the wind and waves to come.
