Ambassador 66 – Smell of the Trades

Sometimes I think I can almost smell them. The trade winds, that is. But of course that’s not true. I just know that they are close, maybe a day or two away, and then hopefully the wind will stay aft of the beam, and the seas and current will go with me.

Until then, I continue on a close-to-beam reach, with the wind varying between 50 and 80 degrees apparent. Fortunately, the winds are mild, typically 8-12 knots, and the seas are an easy 2 to 4 feet.

Last night was relaxing, thankfully, with no squalls at all. I guess Neptune decided to mess with someone else for a change, and I break into the single-digit latitudes…
