Sailing through the Night

People who haven't sailed offshore often ask how we sleep. Now you know ;)

This is Gary, sleeping in his foul-weather gear off-watch, ready to go on short notice.

A Slow Start

The first day out was very calm. We sailed for a while, but later started up the engine, which we continued to run most of the night. So discouraging to burn up all this downwind distance motoring.
