An easy day….

Had an easy day today after a challenging night last night.
Winds filled in at midnight in the 20-30 range. Normally, while not fun that’s not a big deal, we just set the boat up for it, slow down and keep everything as comfortable as possible. The problem last night was the constant and large change in direction and strength for the breeze. We saw 60 degree shifts multiple times and wind speeds up and down between 10 and 30. This created very confused “washing machine” seas, so there was no way to “set up” for the conditions. We just kept changing things and never getting them right.
Lucky for us things calmed down totally this AM and we spent most of the day in 5-12 knots of steady onshore breeze.
Hoping for more of that tonight!
