Day 3

Winds have been mixed today, sometimes perfect, sometimes non-existent. The seas have been both very calm and bumpy. We have been making sail changes nearly every hour it seems, not the relaxing set and forget of the trades yet. Progress continues to be good and the crew is doing well.

We saw some dolphins today, our first wildlife of the trip, unless you count the birds that fly around the boat at night dropping fish guts on the deck for me to step on during sail changes.

The only drama so far was a bent swivel on the top of our Spinnaker, which with liberal application of hammer and rigging tape is fixed. Does not look good, but is fixed.
