Day 30

Todays reading:

Distance traveled since yesterday:  51 miles
Arlete said:  "No wind.  Drats!"
Distance to destination:  1,114 miles
No wind! Dick read the autopilot manual and checked out the workings in the helm pedestal. That’s when he saw the drive chain for the steering had come apart. This explained why tying the wheel and holding a course was impossible.

 The repair was later explained to me as a “high-level Macgyvering” followed by “Don’t put that in the blog, people might think I was being serious.”
We called this a "Napolean's Hat Sunset."
