Leslie's First Posting 7/17/08 13:55 PDT

I am having a wonderful time eating, sleeping and sailing. I am lucky.... no seasickness and sleeping fine. Last night was a bit tough- winds 16-25 and I was on watch with Dave, the captain, from 12- 4. I could not sail much as sailing in open seas, much less at night, is new and challenging. I have not been scared at all- but Dave really had to sail hard last night and I only spelled him 20 minutes.

I got some open water time behind the help today and and that felt good. The crew is marvelous, although a bit tired. Still a bit rough and no sign of the sun.
