We are under way with the asymmetric spinnaker on a beautiful sunny warm day with no a single clouds in the sky. The fishing lure is already in the water and we are hoping for a mahi-mahi. On Sunday at Red Hook they had a fish competition for mahi-mahi and there were boats coming back with 20 of them. I hope the left few for us ...
Every thing is well, and one could not ask for more beautiful day. We are keeping a slightly more north course than the rhumb line to keep the spinnaker full, but as we are going away from the island the wind should shift a bit back to the east and allow us to go back on the rhumb line.

For lunch we have not decided yet if having a simple sandwich with prosciutto crudo di Parma or take advantage of the easy calm sail and cook a lunch pasta.
