Nate Marshall, Stanford

The time is 5:05, the wind is a brisk and warm call to sea, and a directly windward challenge to make it to Papaeete! We will be fighting a headwind for our miles today.

As I went outside to the quarterdeck to check out the sunrise, I was greeted with rain coming sideways under the awning usually assigned to blocking the tropical sun.
