Sailing Sunset

November 7, 2014
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.
