It always seems to take a few days. Getting my sea legs back, getting into the rhythm of sailing around the clock, the routines of life aboard. But I seem to be there, as I am resting better, feeling better, and my body clock is adjusting to the new reality. So that’s a good thing.
Yesterday saw continuing south wind until evening, then it died completely for an hour, then filled in from the east, making for a nice beam reach. So far, it’s been pretty much as forecast, and I am making good progress. Hopefully the next 4 days will continue good and I will get around Cabo Frio without incident.
This morning dawned feeling and looking tropical, although I am still some 600 miles south of the tropic of Capricorn. But I guess it is still summer here, so it should be nice. I am particularly enjoying the clear blue sea, after many months of brown water in the Rio de la Plata.
