400 to go on Seazed Asset

print
Only 400 more miles. My best finish time guess is late Saturday night to early Sunday morning. In the dark:( Hey, that ok, its time to get the trip over with. Set the 1.5 chute yesterday at 0900, carried it all night. Winds kept shifting after sunset, so I was up most the night trimming sails. Switched to the .75 chute at 1100 today. Need the bigger sail and its only blowing 14 knots. I figure is good for .25 knots and that is 5 hours at this distance. Last night was the FIRST night without fleece! Hot and humid today, I am hiding in the shade. What I want when I finish, in no particular order. A bed that is not constantly in motion, cold drink, my girlfriend, and of course a shower:) Right now its pretty darn calm, no surfing at all. I had a bit yesterday, today no big swells. Good boat speed, 7-7.5 steady. Good for the longer waterline boats like me. The anorexia (ULDB) boats cannot surf in these conditions. Need to get a GRIB, tried this am was unsuccessful. Bad conditions for the SSB. Lasts nights GRIB has me on port pole to the finish, yea! Here to aiming at the Palm Trees!!:) Vance Seazed Asset ————————————————- Do not push the “reply” button to respond to this message if that includes the text of this original message in your response.
