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

We are now sailing wing to wing under the sun with a nice breeze of 16 kts.
The fish line is in the water and we did caught a small Mahi Mahi that we decided to release and let it grow hoping to catch soon a bigger one.

The course is now 240 T since we want to go a bit south reaching 13 or 14 N to avoid the light air that is forecast on the rhumb line.
