Again today, another beautiful sailing day. The wind was not quite as plentiful as we like but this has the silver lining of allowing us to do a whole lot of sail handling. Our new trainees are quickly grasping what has to get done, both on the deck and aloft on the yards. Becky, our new cook, is producing some fantastic meals, snacks and even jury rigged a coffee grinder to get us back into freshly ground coffee beans. For some, this makes her the hero of the day!
