When the blue water turns grey it is time to reef the sails. These clouds bring stronger wind from a more easterly direction, rain, waves, all the nasty stuff. In addition, the gain of the solar panels decreases so that I have to save energy. It is getting wet in the cockpit, I have to close the hatches. I am going way too fast now. I will have to take the mainsail down before dawn. Then I can adjust the speed better by just furling in or out the headsail. It will be a busy last night.
