What a Beautiful Day! - Day 16

Wow! What a beautiful sail we have been having since we exited the ITCZ!

There has been a gentle 10 knot breeze pulling us along at 4-5 knots with the spinnaker, in large gentle swell. Sometimes one can forget that the boat is sailing the motion has been so comfortable! These are the seas I have been waiting for on this passage, large long period swell, with nice clean faces like a ever changing rolling hillside.

We have been taking this opportunity to catch up on some much needed sleep. It has been the closest to sleeping at anchor we have had on this trip and it is great!

Tomorrow we will reach the equator! We look forward to opening our equator crossing gifts from Lou & Patrice and Anne-Marie's friends from UCSF.
