Wind now 30 kts, nasty lumpy sea but we're still stonking - McQ has said it all, except for the big whale we saw a couple of days ago and some more Dall's Porpoises. The whale was about half a mile away, only one spout and I think I saw tail flukes as it sounded.
If we can keep it all together, Nome in about 3 days. Might see our first ice before that, but unlikely. And only 30 days to the eclipse, so we have to try to get at least to Cambridge Bay by then.
