Cold but sunny. Hello New England.

J-Bomb was screaming along last night under reefed main and jib with the breeze about 60 degrees off starboard making 7-8 knots. Wish we could have kept it up but the wind started knocking off late and by dawn we were close reaching with the big asym scrapping to make 5 knots. There's no way we'll make it into the barn before the next lull so we'll have to tough it out with some finesse sailing today and tonight then ride the new breeze into the finish line when it comes up.
We're pretty beat and need more sleep but I suppose we can worry about that tomorrow night. Only 140 miles to go.
