Sailing: As the wind calmed down somewhat this morning we finally got to try our new sail the CODE 5, a very large lighter sail, similar to a spinnaker in style. It took a chunk of the morning to get it installed but by the time we got it up, the wind picked up and we had to take it down, but the exercise was good for morale.
Crew Well-being and Morale: Good. Definitely have my sea legs.
Lunch: Salad and sandwiches on homemade bread
Dinner: Lamb Stew with olives over penne and homemade lemon sponge cake
Of Special Interest: We’re more than a third of the way there!
