Tuesday, July 8th: 20:00 – Sailing the trades

Just sailing moderate trades, pushing the boat hard to make every wave count

14 knots of boat speed, 100 degrees apparent, 137 true wind angle, heading 254 (pointing straight to Hawaii), 13.6 knots of wind speed, 34 degrees wind direction.... Just what we ordered, a late shift to the North East. Lets hope that our luck continues.

Yes, that's what we came for: Lively seas, steady trades and puffy clouds. Its starting to feel like beautiful Hawaii...
