Day 12

Tuesday evening
1110 nm to San Francisco, 1379 nm from Oahu

Another lazy day. Slept a lot since dinner last night. Good to catch up as for a few nights I was really getting behind in the sleep department. But now I feel all caught up.

It seems we played the game with the Pacific High the best we could and still we are ending up sailing right through the middle of it. It has parked itself firmly, directly between us and the northerly winds we hope to find closer to the coast. We expect to have another few days of light winds before we get there. Today we had to do a few hours of motoring, but most of the day we have been sailing close hauled (as close to sailing into the wind as you can go) at between 5 and 6 knots. Luckily the sea is pretty smooth so we aren't pounding into big waves. A bit more wind would be nice, but we have what we have.
