July 15, 2010 - 600 miles in a straight line to Kaneohe

"Thus far today there isn't anything to report but pleasant sunny weather and good sailing. It's clear and warm. Right now it's so nice that Jens and I are the only ones below trying to get some rest (and, in my case, relief from the sun).

Dirk and Tim took care of a mainsheet tangling issue at the end of the boom (video to follow).

We're airing some things out today; the trip has been fairly wet below. A few leaks went undetected before departure and things like cushions have gotten quite damp.

Last night we got the closest to clear skies I've seen on my watches so far (not a very large portion of the sky but very clear with no haze). The Milky Way and minor stars are really vivid out here.
