We tacked and are heading much more South. Wave action is still an issue, we do a lot of rolling. In the last 12 hours the waves have moderated from 8-10 to 5-7 feet so we are rolling a bit less. With light winds the sails flog when we roll so we are giving up a little on course to keep the sails full. According to the GRIB files we will be heading into even lighter winds in the next day or two.
We keep getting light rain every once in a while and mostly overcast skies. Air temperature keeps rising, most nights the cockpit is comfortable but not warm.
Fair winds and following seas.
