Yesterday we had a lovely squall where we were making excellent time and the autopilot didn’t have to work so hard. Then the wind dropped to nothing again and we’ve been jibing back and forth in 4 kts of wind trying to keep moving. The autopilot is sawing back and forth keeping us pointed in the right direction and we’re both exhausted from the frequent sail trim changes and frustrated at the conditions. Our Grib file predictions are for 10 kts from the NE. We wish. We’ve got 3-4 from the East. Sometimes I think the only thing propelling us forward is the meager current. Other than that, all is well. Might make pho for dinner.
No wind. Again.
