Day 18

134 nm made good, all sailing. 495 miles to go.

Much wind shifting. After sunset last night the wind came into the SE I had to take the pole down and we set out on a broad reach. Then about 0300 the wind backed into the East and I had to put the pole back up.

I keep waiting for the part where we don't have to touch a thing for days on end. Before we left I read about a boat that sailed from the Galapagos to Marquesas and didn't change sail for 11 days. I think the most I've gotten is 36 hours.

Oh well, at least I have something to do...
