Just a short update with 300 nm to go. The afternoon wore on with little
change in the heat.. but we did get that squall I was hoping for. For
about an hour it looked like a personal express train to Hawaii for R2. Of
course, it didn't last.. but gave us the opportunity to dry out a few
spinnakers and then enjoy the afternoon under the shade of the big A2. We
joked around and I had to ask for a moment of silence because I haven't
done enough situps to handle the belly laughs.
We see more birds now... two days ago a lone albatross, and now 6 white sea
birds (terns perhaps?) are flitting about. Clearly getting closer to land.
Hoping to get in before the bar closes on Sat night.
