HI to MX, Day 3

Yesterday the wind fluky. One minute we'd be sailing along at 5 knots and the next becalmed. Along with scattered rain showers it made for slow progress. Last night was the first time I wanted long pants on (and we're only at 22N!) I guess it's a good thing we're going slow as it will give us a chance to thicken our blood. Had to kick a red-footed booby off the bow pulpit this morning, lest he become a victim of the great white death (Ziggy). Though I'm not sure who would have won the fight, the booby or Z.

The wind is supposed to veer into the SE today. Let's hope!
