Chi impazzisce a cambiar vele con venti variabili e deboli...
“Difficult day with shifting winds, 20 knots 2 knots, east, northeast, north, southeast, black clouds with no wind, sail maneuvers in response to threats, but to no avail, 10 sail changes today, all for naught, go 12 knots in the right direction, then 9 knots in completely the wrong direction, then 2 knots and lose steerage, 6-7' waves with no wind driving them, choppy from different directions, what is going on here? Very frustrating to say the least. Encountered a ship last night, starboard to starboard passing, called him on vhf when abeam 1/2 mile off, suddenly his radar went on, don't think he had any idea we were there. Full moon has been spectacular.”Rich Wilson ( Great American III) in his daily message
