We're cruising along at 7 knots, making great progress. We made about 160nm in the last 24 hours, our best yet. The winds have been 15-20 knots from the NW, the waves are 8-10 ft making it very bumpy. Sleeping has been more of a challenge under these conditions. We have to wedge ourselves in to minimize flying around. My leg muscles got a work out last night as I propped them up against a bulkhead to act as a shock absorber. It seems to be taking all of us a bit to get back into passage mode, probably due to the lumpy bumpy conditions. Sterling has not given up on fishing. He restocked on lures and 100 pound-test line in Bermuda. Other than the yellow snapper he caught while we were anchored, only seaweed has to been attracted to the line.
