05 Apr Day 8, Still Sailing!
We had a different day today, it was overcast and cooler. The clouds never looked threatening, just filled the sky.
We continued sailing wing and wing, throughout the day. At sunset we decided to change to a Port tack, to see if it will be a little easier sleeping tonight. (Last night we were rocking and rolling most of the night and I had a really hard time getting into a position where I was not getting knocked around. I finally put my back against one side of the quarter-berth and braced my feet on the other.) Generally, the swell is not too bad, until the set of the big ones come in and knock us all around!
Several more of the boats in our “fleet” from Banderas Bay have arrived or are arriving in the Marquesas in the next couple days. So exciting! We still have probably 2/3rds to 1/2 of the trip left to go. I think we are all doing ok, getting into the swing of things, but also excited to get there. We are starting to prepare more for the new weather pattern we expect to experience soon!
How far did we go? April 5 – 120 miles
