Title: A beautiful night

8:39.1S 110:04.6W  1345 miles covered
 
It has been a glorious day for sailing, clear blue skies and a sparkling ocean.  We were just three miles short of repeating Anastasia's personal best of 240 miles.  The wind is down a bit now so we will be doing less tomorrow.
 
Tonight we have one of the clearest skies so far and Andrea is out spotting constellations.  Jupiter, Venus and Mars are all in the sky together.  Did you know that Canopus, the second brightest star in the sky, was used by the space shuttle for navigation?  The Southern Cross is very clear tonight. 
 
Everything was peaceful until Andrea just emitted a blood curdling scream,  Nothing serious, just hit on the leg by a flying fish.  The fish survived.
 
Here is today's sunrise.
