Things don’t start smoothly for our 300 nautical mile passage to Mexico. After waiting for a decent weather window we hoist sail and head straight out into the Gulf Stream. The seas are steep and confused and Baby Nugs loses her breakfast. Twice in fact 🙁 We decide to hoist both downwind sails to stabilize Delos and gain speed, and soon are making amazing progress in a perfect 15 knots of wind. Delos and crew are in the groove and we have an incredible day of pure downwind sailing. Day turns to night and Brian brakes down the night watch rules for new crew Taylor. The moon rises and we have a fantastic night of moonlit downwind sailing before the wind changes and we’re forced to drop sail and gybe to get back on course. To be continued in part 2!
