A full day of extra mild Gulf weather. SW winds 5-8 knots, but nice and steady. Busted out my sun umbrella mid morning in the light wind and it worked great, later I mostly sailed from below to hide from the sun. 

Looking ahead I have a couple of awkward distances to cover or an overnighter or a day of tight wind angles. 

Got a roam signal a couple times today from oil rigs. 

I’m assuming I’m alligator free this far out in the saltwater, but the deer flies are fierce, they must have devoured all the deer because  i’ve seen only 2 on this entire trip.
