Today I have been in squall after squall of the most severe kind that I have seen. I can no longer fight The Grey Cloud Carriers. They are winning and have stolen all but the breath from my body.
I am 70 nm away from shore and I won’t make it before dark. I got headed and will need to jibe soon. I am waiting for the seas to calm before doing so. Or at least for a drop of sun to grace the sky.
I feel like I felt the first day or two at sea and I want nothing more than to get off of this boat.
This is the longest that I have ever been at sea and most certainly the longest amount of time I have ever spent alone.
It is time for me to exit this journey.
I wish to write more but my heart is fluttering away and I must try to catch it before it jumps in the sea and sinks away from me forever.
Everyone please pray that my last night at sea is gentle to me, that I have enough energy to stay awake and make circles until daylight, and that I have a good entry into harbor in the morning.
