In all of our previous days of sailing in either the Buccaneer or the Catalina, we have gone without any particular plan, just going whichever direction seemed like a good idea at the time. The only course requirement was that we needed to get back to where we had started. The last two days, we have set out with particular destinations and planned courses for getting there. That has required some navigating and some discipline. It has worked out well. We covered about 25 miles on a triangular course yesterday and 20 miles on an out and back course today.

The weather continues to be sunny with a cool humid breeze during the day and humid and cool at night. Earlier this evening, the temperature was 68, the dew point was 62, and the wind was blowing 15-20 mph. Earlier in the day, the temperature had been near 80. Things should be a little different tomorrow with higher winds. We are going to try to do our sailing early before the winds peak.
