The Doldrums Are Here

This time of year can be pretty sketchy for sailing. The doldrums are basically periods of no wind. I've made plans to go sailing three times now that were spoiled by lack of wind. I can't wait to get out there! Not only does it make sailing difficult, it makes it hot! Around here, the wind is your only relief from the heat besides air conditioning. Swimming is an option too but you are usually dry by the time you make it back to your towel. I'm not sure how long this season lasts but I want to go sailing!

Love the blog... Thanks for the details on getting processed for Kwaj. I just accepted the job (unaccompanied as well) and just waiting on paperwork, physicals, etc.
