Ahoy,

Hot day meant we could get our shorts on at last. Mostly clear sky's heading for the Gulf Stream. Dolphins playing in our bow wave.

After months of studying the GS we finalized our strategy and took the plunge Into its warm waters at last, making good time with our spinnaker. A sudden GS squall (30+ knts) made life interesting for Jacques and Seth on the foredeck as we doused the asym and unfurled the Jenny.

Now rolling along watching the moon and clouds making a shadow play as the moon lights the clouds from behind outlining their many shapes.

Counting ourselves lucky to have a sturdy, well equipped craft and capable compatible crew,

Jim and Jacques
