Every day one of Andrea's first tasks is to throw the nights haul of suicidal flying fish overboard. So far 22 fish have boarded Anastasia. This morning she found two fish and one unidentifiable blob on the deck. On closer inspection it turned out that one of the fish hit the boom so hard that one of its eyes flew out of its socket and landed several feet away on the deck. Sorry, we didn't take a picture for the blog.
It has been another slow day and Andrea decided that we might go faster if we increased our sail area, so she hung a load of knickers out on the line. They don't seem to be catching much breeze, mind you neither does the spinnaker in the background.
