After weeks at sea in the Pacific, I have mastered the art of walking at an angle. The easterly winds in this part of the world have been pushing the Sea Dragon north along on a starboard tack, meaning that the wind is coming from the right and causing the boat to roll over to the left. Every step is a fight against gravity. Tasks that would be all too simple on land, such as preparing a meal or even walking from your bunk to the head, become challenging. I’ve learned to time my motions to the rolling of the ship, an especially important consideration when pouring boiling water for tea!
