Remarks: Winds came light overnight, took in sail and fired up the main engine and pushed for a while in the calm. Sara and Liam made quick work at cutting down the fore t’gallant for repair. Found a sailing breeze, shut down the engine and set sail just before lunch. Sailing along sweet now in small seas. Could not be nicer.
