We have had a relaxing day as we sail through an area of lighter airs and calm seas. Captain has been banking sleep in anticipation of a lively Wednesday and Thursday as a new high pressure system moves in from the NW. We have been heading west to intercept what should be the first of the trade winds this season. After an anticipated gusty two days with confused seas, we expect the trades to take us briskly towards St. Lucia.
Captain and I took advantage of the flattish seas to gybe our two headsails and poles. I have also secured any remaining loose items. Our sleeping arrangements are prepared. See photos with lee cloths.image1
