Nice. Dolphins and porpoises are so nice in those conditions.

Beam reach must be nice. We tend to come out Hawaii close hauled. for 8-10 days before we pick up the westerlies, then broad reach home, if we are lucky. That happened in 2000, but 2010 we were hard on the wind most of the way, handsteering with no dodger. This time we will have a dodger.
