Southern Hemisphere - and the air is fine

Just checking in...

We crossed the Equator a few days ago, and Neptune made an appearance. Now four Shellbacks continue southwards, with light winds and big swells - a combination that makes for less than idea progress. We're doing some downwind sailing - even some dead-downwind,but the big swells tend to spill air from the sails.

We're all well. Hot and sticky. Anxious for our landfall, and hope our daily average speed picks up (which would need the seas to lay down a bit, and/or the winds to pick up a bit). Love to family and friends.
