Salacia: Day 17 - Finally some relative peace @ Sail Blogs
by NewsReader 04-17-2006

What's that I hear? NOTHING! Well, that's definitely a relative term with the banging of blocks and the water rushing by, but the sound today is peaceful silence compared to yesterday! The wind is ENE 20-25, a nice breeze, but the seas are literally half of what they were just 12 hours ago. I just looked back in my log book and ever since April 12th we've been dealing with 25-35 knot winds and 12' confused seas. The highest gust I recorded was 49 knots. All this because a low pressure system above the Pacific High spit a gust of wind down our way. It truly was a miserable 5 days. A day at a time it would have been quite exciting, but five days strung together with very little sleep was tough on both of our systems. Direct Link
