35.14.8 N   71.32.8 W   We all woke up to muffins that I had made the day before and we sat up in the cockpit and ate. We checked on the fishing line, and guess what we found...  More Sargasso Salad😥 Poppi and I worked on the phonetic alphabet in the morning and then everyone had a short 'knot tying class' altogether. Nick and Will said that the two most useful knots were the Bowline Knot and the Clove Hitch. Poppi taught me the bowline first, then we worked on a clove hitch. We sailed for about half of the day and then we power-sailed so we could get to our destination quicker. At around noon, 3 boats popped up on the radar, and we could see them all on the horizon. In the afternoon, Poppi and Mom played with the sextant and Poppi taught Mom a little bit on how to use it. We had a nice lasagna dinner and sunset. Mom took a nap while we watched 'Naked Gun 2 1/2' which was a very funny movie. We saw a couple more boats throughout the evening. I just ate a chocolate chip cookie and I am on watch right now. Arbella is coming 3 miles away from a cargo vessel and we had to change course. We are hoping to enter the Gulf Stream tomorrow morning at 6 am
