Day 16

With the doldrums behind us, conditions are starting to pick up again. We are entering another area of squalls, so we are keeping a close eye on the weather. We rounded up on the spinnaker with an out-of-nowhere gust but made a quick recovery and doused. With lighter winds in the forecast we swapped the 130 Genoa for the 155 Genoa and she’s carrying us nicely. Somehow when doing this maneuver our fishing line got wrapped around the rudder so we had to heave to, dive down, and release it. Never a dull moment :).

Good night everyone. Until tomorrow, Bravo out.
