Last night Jessica and I dined on salad, crackers and camembert cheese in the cockpit under the stars. An hour later I had stomach cramps, then Jessica got it. We were both violently sick. The Camembert was the culprit. It left us both feeling a bit under the weather for a while. No more camembert on board fortunately.
As expected, the escape from Hawaii is proving to be frustrating and tiring. After a good start we ran into areas of calm and light airs interspaced with rain squalls. All day we have been searching out wind, tacking, gybing, drifting becalmed, and motoring. The torrential rain from the squalls has cleaned the Honolulu dust and grime off the boat nicely but its all very exasperating.
Hopefully tomorrow we can break free from the island effect and head south with the easterly trades. Voyage distance 106 miles.
