Blistering between squalls

We waited patiently for a weather window with a stable high to ride steady southeasterlies on top of it–only to sail right into a convergence zone that was only mentioned in the forecast after we had set out. Well, we’re making the best of the light and fickle winds. Yesterday we put the gennaker (big lightwind sail) up in the morning, soon after black squally clouds moved in, so we were constantly ready to take it quickly down, but fortunately none of them hit us directly and we had the blister flying (and collapsing in too light winds and bumpy waves) all day while Christian nearly got a sun stroke trying to trim it… Today the situation looks very similar. 1370 to go!
