Wind (motor on) light wind from ENE
Day 10 miles covered 131

Good day of light wind sailing and dodging thunderheads. Passing to the left, passing to the right, passing in front of us and passing behind us but today we didn't get wet. A couple of times we saw the wind go from 8-10 to maybe 15-16 briefly but otherwise the squalls pretty much left us alone. Unfortunately the ITCZ is widening as we attempt to cross so likely a motor day tomorrow and hope that we can find some wind on the other side further south. All systems and crew good aboard SeaGlub. It's definitely warm but not terribly hot, just gotta stay out of the sun in the daytime and at night it's cool enough to sleep with a sheet on. Speaking of sleep, we've gotten into a nice watch routine where we have dinner and watch the sunset then wait about an hour to start watches. We go 2 hours on 2 hours off then 4 hours on and 4 hours off which gets us well past sunrise.
