We revisited the weather of our departure last night. We had rain squalls most of the night. Winds got up into the 30 to 35 knot range in the squalls. Then the wind would die. We reefed and shook out reefs about 7 or 8 times. Finally we accepted that we would go a little slower during the lulls.
We all have arrival fever. The big question on board is "are we there yet daddy?" Followed of course by "I have to go potty", "I am hungry" and the classic "stop hitting me" to the nearest sibling.
