Day 9: Nighttime squalls and daytime chores
I woke up to the exact opposite. Another prefect day of sailing. I've got my auto pilot pretty dialed in, so I let Auto steer the whole day. Instead, I got a few chores done. Cleaned up some loose things in the boat, dried my soaked clothes, made some essential water etc. Pretty productive day, especially after two long days of bad weather sailing. Feels like a Sunday, although it's only Friday. I topped it off with rewarding myself with steak for dinner, then a movie.
The current tack is taking me almost straight to Hawaii. Should last well into the night and by the time I gybe, I should be halfway between San Francisco and Honolulu. Looks like I could be there in 9 days or even less if the winds are on my extra good side.
