I woke up a little early for my shift and finally caught my first green flash as the sun set below mirror calm seas! I finally get to check that dream off of my bucket list!
As my shift started, we’re still seeing 3-5kt winds and mirror calm seas, this would be great water skiing weather.
We’re headed due south with about 650 miles to go. Hopefully we’ll break out of the doldrums and catch the trade winds in another 70-00 miles.
Is currently 22:00 and I’m watching Kool Blizzard, a tanker, cut across our bow, they should pass within 2.5 mi of us out here on the open sea.
23:00 The wind has shifted and strengthened, if I can get another 20° shift will be able to set our sails.
