July 18, 2007

As I lay back in my cabin to start this update, the wind was blowing from the southwest.  The temperature was comfortable and I didn’t have to wear extra layers of clothes. 

I was losing ground because of the wind.  If I could only hold onto the distance I had gained from shore, the winds would turn.  I kicked back and waited for the direction of the winds to change. 

I kept an eye on the compass and set my alarm clock to wake me up every two hours.  By morning the boat was heading due south.

So you think I worry about the wind out here all the time?  Well, you may be partly right.  Losing ground is very disappointing.
