Project Pacific: Day 2.6

After some excitement of a good news phone call, we were too busy celebrating with a beer (that we pretended to be cold.) So here is a little update to make up for the delayed post.

Steady trade winds and sunshine mean for some pretty amazing sailing.  We all agree that it can’t get much better than this. After re-reading the guide book,  which claims the passage to be quite an experience, we are hoping our luck with the weather won’t turn for the worse.  One of the hardest parts of sailing is taking everything as it comes as we can only deal with now.

Josh and I decided to start a work out routine which is quite hilarious to watch as we slide around the cockpit, attempting to do push-ups as the swells gyrate the boat beneath us.  Hot tip:  time your push ups so the wave helps you on the way up!

Christine’s note:  They are indeed having some amazing weather.  That shifting high – see the image below – seems to be leaving them with a great route home.  I have projected for them another five days or so of their preferred winds before we start trying to work them about the high and below a system north of this.  Quite the winds blowing of Vancouver Island right now so I am glad they aren’t positioned there!
