> We're enjoying the first night we've seen the moon since we started. It's full and round, and it lights up the sky so it appears to be twilight all night. It's warmer now, land is close at hand, though still not visible. The wind has come up as predicted and we're sailing fast, but whether or not it'll be fast enough to beat Carina is still a big question. There's nothing for us to do now but sail hard and see how it turns out.
