Good Morning, It is so nice to have the Bay crossing behind us. The
seas have finally settled down and we are able to make decent speed in
the right direction. Engine has been running at 2300 rpms. Our next
waypoint is Sacramento reef.
The port spreader light came loose last night with all the banging of
the seas. It held on for about 6 hours and came down during Francis's
watch. The bilge pump has been reading 1 pump every few hours. I am
sure that is from the water coming in through the anchor locker.
Otherwise Celtic song and crew are holding up well. We are now on a 3
hour watch schedule during the day and Jean suggested we change it to 2
hours at night. We all agreed. It was a long cold 3 hours last night
and all you could do was hold on while you were standing.
Today we are looking to catch up on sleep in the calm seas as we
approach the mainland. Our next waypoint is Sacramento Reef. The
weather report from Predict Wind looks extremely favorable after we
round Punta Baja.
