It was a strange day on the water. All sails except the first sail had virtually no breeze for a part of the cruise. And then all within the same cruise, the wind picked up and we were going 7.5 knots and the boat is healed over. Most of this was due to small clouds with energy in them, giving us a push of breeze.
