Detailed Track (50 is the maximum number of point, i.e. once the last point reaches 50, the last point always is 50):

At 10am this morning a mahi-mahi of 2'4" decided to offer himself for dinner on Blue Note.
Yesterday was our slowest sailing day of the trip so far with a 24h sailing distance of 130NM. The next couple of days before arrival should be nice and relatively fast since as this morning the east trading winds have settled-in. The sea is calm and blue, the sky without a clouds and we will have fish for dinner, so what to ask for more ...
