Day 4 - Passage

We're still plagued by light winds out of the South, but using them to get as far east as possible before making a turn south. We haven't seen another boat since early yesterday evening, when Pablo made contact with a tanker that was about one half of a mile away. The girls have been watching the new Harry Potter movie, doing projects, reading and playing games. Wishing I had a few more hands so that I could hold onto the boat and actually do things at the same time. Pretend like you are swaying 20 deg from side to side and pour hot water into a thermos which really requires 2 hands. Nothing that is set down stays where it is placed unless it is bolted down. The kids have caught on that they have to hold their dinner plate with one hand and eat with the other.
It is in the low 80's so most of us spent the day in shorts. Sterling is still waiting for it to warm up. Pablo is really enjoying Sterling as expert crew and we're all really enjoying his company. We accomplished 116 nm in the past 24 hours.
