We’re back with part 2 of our 3,000 nautical mile trip across the Pacific Ocean. We bash our way through one of the roughest nights we’ve had in YEARS as we round the turbulent stretch of ocean surrounding Cabo San Lucas. Sleep is out of the question, and the simplest of tasks require monumental effort. But as we make more miles out into the open ocean away from the compression zone, things start to settle, and by day 4 the wind clocks all the way around and we're able to set up the poles and get ready for some glorious downwind bliss.

The worst of it was behind us (at least for now) and we could kick back and the let the breeze at our backs push us along for days and days and days.

I think this episode really captures some of the realities of sailing...the ups and downs in moods and energies. How every aspect of daily life on passage is so drastically affected by the weather and conditions. We hope you enjoy this glimpse into what life is really like on passage for us.
