Dawn is breaking as we approach Cape Aguhlas (the Southernmost tip of Africa). As the nascent sun starts to burn away the crisp chill of the night, it dawns on me that our long hard southing is soon behind us.
This ocean has been demanding for sure and (as promised) it has also been proportionally rewarding. The next 7000 miles will all be north.
With elation, I realize that I will soon find the answer to that question my teenage self posed, sitting on a breakwater in Newport Rhode Island, “I wonder what it would be like to sail across that ocean. What is out there?”
All is well
