Day’s Run – 20 April 2019

Fresh to strong northeasterly trade winds and a strong Brazilian current are sending us on our way. Pretty lumpy seas, no doubt due in part to bounce back off the coast to the leeward. Flying jib, outer jib, fore t’gallant, mainsail, spanker and upper staysails are taken in. Steering is pretty good though.
