724 miles to go. Jibed to port tack. Wing and wing. Nice conditions. Wind NE 15 kts, seas NE 4 feet. Sunny with some interesting cloud formations. Good sailing continues. Bunce of birds today. Four white winds began circling the boat in the morning. We got nervous that one would strike the lure (we’re still trolling, still no joy) so we hauled in the line. All four departed soon after, but in the evening a different bird showed up and spent at least 15 minutes doing his best to land on the mast. The wind indicator up there made this a no-go, so he finally gave up and just sat down on the water. Hot solar showers in the cockpit were very refreshing.
