Day’s Run – 10 April, 2016

The front came through as expected over night last night, force

7 winds and some big swell, but hove-to the ship handled the weather easily and it had already started to lay down again by this morning.

Soon we’ll fire up the main engine and push north while the winds are light.  Kevin and Bronwyn were our Sunday cooks today; they did a good job of getting plenty of hot food out on time, and more impressively keeping the galley tidy in the roll.  All’s well.
