Cirrus under sail - straining to get to Long Beach

A couple of pictures of optimism in action: Bill standing in the cockpit demonstrating one method of getting some knots out of the zephyrs - flying the main and jib "wing and wing". Next they tried the 1/2 ounce spinnaker and managed to eke out another knot of boat speed. Tenacity! You can judge how long this trip is taking by the length of Bill's beard! He was clean shaved when he left Hawai'i.
