Day 11

“Squalls, squalls, squally squalls squalls” – SV Sedna

It somehow feels less crappy when you know you buddy boats are in this with you. We’ve all been surfing through these big waves, big wind, and rainfall for the last 3 days. The sailing has been fast, fun and required a lot of focus. Auto can’t handle the swells so we have to take turns at the helm. I’ll regret saying this, but I am looking forward to the calms of the ITCZ.

Squalls!

Bravo has been doing fantastic in these conditions as her crew holds on for the wild ride. We love you Bravo.

Princess Rhonda Boobarella left us this afternoon. May she find plenty of flying fish wherever she roams.

Good night everyone. Until tomorrow, Bravo out.
