Yesterday at noon, we decided to go for an early asymmetric setting. Of course, we had been a little optimistic, but after rearranging and added a reef in the main the course was not too bad. Well, looking only at where we were pointing, it was bad – Marquesas, but on the other hand, we haven`t been there, but we had also a plan of not sailing in to a light wind area just in front of us. Our boat speed increased by 2 to 3 knots, so that justifies pointing off the course with a quite some degrees. Will be interesting to see how it all will turn out!
Today there will be a birthday celebration on board Nådeløs. Karl Otto, the navigator, turns 41. For the first time in 5 years, it is not going to be a double birthday with Eirik. 2 years ago, he was the navigator on this boat and it was celebrated common 82 years birthday. Happy birthday to you too Eirik!
