Wing on Wing

The rudder remains quiet and happy, and Dominic is expertly adjusting the sails to accommodate flukey and variable winds we’ve been having. Currently we have the cruising code zero and the jib wing on wing headed south west with a northerly wind behind us. Aside from a few spells of totally dead wind (between 3 and 4 am this morning, the wind vane was doing 360’s and we were headed north at .1 knots…yuck) we’ve been having excellent sailing and been making about 120 nm per day; we’d like to be at 150, but we’re satisfied as conditions are calm and we’re comfortably hanging out—reading novels, watching movies, playing cards, and eating up the last of the delicious chicken mole we stocked up on in Ensenada.
