A real calm

After a night of very light winds the dreaded calm finally got us this morning and we ended up motoring (the waves were still too high to just sit on the water…). After a few hours the engine died–the clogged fuel line was fortunately easy to find and clear.
Now we’ve just got enough of a breeze to keep Pitufa sailing again with 2 to 3 knots (an old lady on a rollator walker could overtake us, but we don’t complain as long as the sails don’t flap). Keep your fingers crossed that the breeze will stay (or pick up) during the night :-)
