Misto - October 14, 2018: Calm and Serene (well, comparatively speaking)
For now the rambunctious winds and rough seas have given way to a calmer view of the Indian Ocean. Today the winds have dropped to an enjoyable 16 knots or so and the seas have dropped considerably, even if they can't quite make up their minds which direction to come from. It was a day when you are pleased to be out sailing, in comparison to the previous few when I wondered why on earth I was doing this! Tonight the small sliver of moon is also shining - through clouds it must be admitted - but when it does shine through it lights up the water with a ghostly, silvery sheen rather appropriate for approaching Halloween.
