All good on Blue Note, but very little wind. Right now we are sailing at 4knt in 6knts of wind with the spinnaker up. Early this morning was a bit better and the spinnaker was giving us 6-7 kts speed.
The lure is out for catching tuna, but so far no luck, so lunch was a simple sandwich, hoping that the afternoon will bring a catch of the day in the evening menu. Otherwise pasta or the pork-chop on the grill.
