Saving 14 Gallons

Fiona was sailing at 4:00AM.  By 6:00PM the winds died again so we start to motor once more.  But, we did get an ice chart for Resolute which is looking good ... and the sail did save us fourteen gallons of diesel.  That is fourteen hours more motoring range.

I am finding little, or perhaps "no" is more accurate, desire to write or read.  I think my whole focus is on "the mission;" successfully geting this boat through the Northwest Passage.  This reminds me of flying single engine airplanes across the Atlantic, or the attention one might devote to a new lover.  There are no brain cells left for anything else.
