> It is warmer tonight than last night. Condensation covers everything on deck which makes it more chilly for whomever is on watch. We are both wearing similar gear: thermals, a Musto one piece windstopper fleece, a fleece jacket or vest, and Musto foulie bibs and boots. Add the watch cap and it is toasty enough.
> The wind continues to oscilate through 10 degrees or so but has consistently backed by about 10 degrees. Which makes the choice for Sable Island more definitive - either go through the oil rig field and the south side of the island or gybe over and go over the top. In part the decision will be based on what the wind for tomorrow is looking like.
