Underway on the northern Oregon coast
Beautiful sunset with a bonus green flash! Winds built to 15 knots plus and for the last few hours we're flying a spinnaker.
We might stop at Newport about 45 miles distant, if we can maintain our present speed of 8 knots. Our ETA would be about 11PM and with a full moon, moderating seas and no restrictions on the bar it's appealing to spend a night tied to the dock vs splitting watches overnight. The weather forecast suggests excellent conditions with northerly winds through Tuesday down the coast.
That's it for now.
