Rio Grande to Punta del Este - Day 1

We left Museo Oceanografico at 10:00. The wind was SSE F3 but was forecast to back to the east.

With no sign of a change in the wind we anchored inside the breakwater at 13:15. At 16:00 the wind appeared to be backing eastwards so we weighed anchor and cleared Rio Grande breakwater at 17:05.

We were able to hold a course of 185º T for the rest of the evening sailing under main (3 reefs),
yankee and staysail. Moderate to rough seas with a moderate swell. Boat motion was uncomfortable.
