4am April 5th

this has to have been one of the all time
strangest nights onboard.

with a weather forecast for 15 to 20 out of the NW,
we get full on victory at sea conditions from sunset
through about midnight with a steady shift from
the nw to the ene!! spent most of the night with
engine off reaching along with double reefed main
while dropping off huge waves and then having the
next few wash over us. the crew has been initiated
and now clearly understands what the baja bash is
all about!!

Now to top things off at 4am the wind has died down
to 5 knots out of the nw again??? what is up with
all that?? turtle bay in about 8 hours for
some rest and to let a bigger blow slide by.

more later.
