Make it Stop

Dave's first comment to me this morning when I took over the watch was "Honey, please make it stop." He was only half kidding.

We've got relative winds of 20-25kts and we are hard on the wind. It is a very wet salty ride. Just going to the bathroom is an adventure.

But we've got the boat trimmed well, and it's pretty much sailing itself. We are snug and dry down below, except for popping out to check on things every 20 minutes or so--from the vantage of our fairly dry protected cockpit. So it could be a lot worse.

We knew this was going to be a bear of a trip, coming back, when we left French Polynesia for Hawaii. It should get better in a few days when we get closer to the equator.
