Renegade - Leg 1, Days 3-4

It's 04:00 on day 4 and I have the watch while Julie and Peter get some rest.I have good wind at 15-20 kts.It's been from the east all day, but there is a rain cloud sneaking up behind me right now and pushing it southeast.Not a problem at all, the boat needs a rinse.There's a big container ship on the horizon that will pass about 2 miles ahead of us, fairly close by ocean standards. We had some excitement yesterday just before sunset.We were sailing wing and wing with the genoa poled out on the opposite side from the mainsail.I wanted to switch sides, moving genoa over to port and main to starboard, so we can make more progress south.This maneuver is complicated by the pole, which has to be taken down and then set up on the other side, and we only had a short time before sunset.Peter. read more...
