We had rain showers again last night and this morning. Sometimes we get gusts with the rain, sometimes not so it keeps us pretty much awake in case we have to trim. The days are then hot and sticky. We can't open the hatches as Reboot ships a wave every once in a while. The only one who so far has not been doused from head to toe is XO. The rest of us have had our unexpected full body bath. At least it keeps the cockpit floor clean.
We continue at good speed and are looking forward to making landfall.
Fair winds and following seas.
