Day 2 Passage

We sailed all day yesterday and thru the night under the jib alone. The winds were behind us so it was easier not to deal with the main sail. We motored for 3 hours this morning when the winds died. We've progressed 135 nm so far, only another 1200 to go. The night was clear and well lit by the moon. There are a lot of sailboats around us, usually have at least five in sight. A tiny bird, that the girls named Fiddlesticks, explored the boat for a couple of hours. He liked Sterling especially and sat on him and took a nap on a pillow next to him. Everyone seems happy and getting into the swing of the passage.
