Steadily improving conditions, heading north in the Caribbean (out of the ITCZ). This intensely Zen like shot of a deck cleat is actually intended to show the amount of pitch -- as in PITCH, ROLL, YAW, axes of movement -- the boat is encountering. Although it was taken with a wide angle lens, it is hard to imagine a sea state that mild looking, generating such vomit inducing action. The water running down the deck (stern to the left, bow to the right) has been scooped from the sea when the boat buried its snout in the preceding wave.
