Day 2

This SUCKS!!!

We picked up a SE to S to SW wind today bringing us close hauled on our course and seas 5-7 feet. Not down wind sailing in the tropics to say the least. Isabelle gave over to seasickness but the rest of the crew held out. Jake had a blast spending several hours hanging on the steering module and calling the ever bigger waves getting ready to splash into Nikita and shower us with salt water.

Position 16.55 N 68.26 W sailing 260 at 4 knots.
