I think We've Found the North East Trade Winds

They make the seas very bumpy! Doing the slightest task becomes a chore as you're trying to keep yourself from being thrown across the cabin (or deck or where ever you may be). Right now, I've got myself braced in an uncomfortable position but this is the only way I can type without finding the keyboard and me on top of the stove. We've changed course to make it more comfortable but if we continue in this direction, we wind up in Hawaii!

Everything is working fine but we're still not getting much sleep. I think that will change as we get used to the motion. I'll write more later.
