We continue with double reef mainsail and staysail anticipating that wind and seas should ease within 12 and 24 hours respectively. Great dinner of chicken parmesean and green salad last night. Crew is taking all in stride and everyone is standing their watch. Dani is still finding sea legs but refuses to complain. At this hour it remains dark with the earliest rays of dawn. I cannot yet view the seas nor can I give my morning flying fish report. We are fine and I am looking forward to some tropical warmth.
