Follow along as we are mesmerized by a jumping pod of dolphins at the bow, monitor the power situation (and show you our cool below-decks inverter), and make our one BIG tack of the trip. We had some great wind that allowed us to hold a pretty steady rhumb line all the way to Cuba. Hope you guys are enjoying the vicarious Cuba voyage. Enjoy!

Loved the video.It looks like you were having a great time with the dolphins.
Annie: At 1:50ish seconds you are hauling away on the genoa reefing pennant. Quick tip, in a breeze: Ease the main a lot, lay off to a very broad reach, the jib will collapse behind the main, it can be rolled in effortlessly. Trim the head sail to the estimated new angle, head up and re-trim the main, re-trim the main sail as you come back to course. No winches or struggle required.
