The first half of the night was beautiful sailing, the wind was
relatively stable and Roxy trickle along nicely, with only a couple of
calm patches.

Now it is a different matter, as the wind is decreasing and we are
slipping along much slower. Looking at my track on Maxsea, we have just
written an almost perfect "S"!!! Quite proud of my achievement on
writing the first letter of my name, it is a little disconcerting
however and I would prefer not to do any more letters!!

The reason for the zig-zag is that what little wind there is is very
shifty and I have to choose the best course for each moment, trying to
get the best VMG North as possible (as our "exit" from the calms is to
the North.) This is painstaking work and I am on my toes to tack, change
sail, keel, stacking.... whatever necessary to keep going forward!

Luckily I managed an accumualtion of nearly 5 hours sleep at the
beginning of the night (a whopper!!!) so I am not too knackered, but if
it continues like this all day it's going to be hard.

On a slightly different subject, my flying fish macscot is still with
me. "Godfrey" is the big fish with the very surprised expression that
landed a few days ago on ROXY (I sent a photo.) For some reason, I
couldn't throw him overboard and he has been keeping watch in the
cockpit for me, with his big mouth, and one wing outstretched as ever! I
have now become a bit attatched to Godfrey and it's going to be hard to
get rid of him!

Happy Tuesday!
