My 7-10pm watch just ended. Captain Adrien cooked up some baked chicken, corn, rice, and a salad with these amazingly sweet apples. The wind has been a steady 25 knots, the sea has flattened out a bit. The boat is doing solid 7 knots with occasional bursts over 8. Still warm enough for shorts and a wind breaker. Venus is setting in the West, and the quarter Moon is high over the stern reflecting off the waves. Miles Davis is playing in my headphones.
