The day started very wet. The rain never seemed to stop and the wind didn’t help either. This was my first full hour awake on Mary Jewell, a great start. After a long wait for the rain to stop we got going. We moved to a mooring ball for lunch. After another wait we got the go ahead and set out on the maiden voyage of the trip. The sea got rougher and soon it felt like we were surfing. At this time the pirate conversations were by far the funniest thing of the day. Tonight’s meal of sloppy joes was amazing. Tomorrow is going to be so good sailing all day, I can’t wait.
