The first full day and night are behind us and we’re well underway. We put one reef in the sail before dinner, in case the wind came up unexpectedly high, but it was probably unnecessary. True wind stayed mostly between twenty and thirty knots (nautical-mile-per-hour, in case you were wondering). We kept the sails trimmed to 145 degrees off the wind, a broad reach, mostly downwind. This meant our direction varied a bit as the wind shifted back and forth, but the wind is pretty consistent so we pretty much kept our WNW heading through the night. Top speed 15.8 kts, average speed around 9-10.
Coffee, bacon and eggs for breakfast. #catamaranlife
