Oh, That?

Oh, that aimless back and forth on the Spot Tracker screen (right)? Turns out that the forecast for SW winds was a bit optimistic, and this morning we found ourselves slamming into westerly 20 knot winds, with a little tide against the wind to make the waves stand up and take notice. "Let's see if it's better at lunch time" turned into "I think this is enough for me" very quickly, but not quick enough to avoid one final triumphant wave over the bow, down the dorades, into the cockpit and through the engine breather box. The nice sheltered anchorage we had just left was clearly the place to be, and that's where we spent the afternoon.

We'll try again tomorrow.
