Detailed Track (50 is the maximum number of point, i.e. once the last point reaches 50, the last point always is 50):
Yesterday around 2pm local time, just as we were having a late lunch, another Mahi Mahi
(the first one was a very small one and was release to go back in Atlantic and grow more)
decided to offer himself for dinner on Blue Note. Not a too large Mahi-Mahi about 23 inches in length.
This morning the trusted lure was back in teh water and around 9am just as we were having breakfast a larger Mahi- Mahi preseted himeself.
This one was measured to be 3 ft in lenght and 8 pounds.
As for sailing the conditions are still ideal for continuing a wing on wing with 15-18 kts of wind and SOG of about 7 kts.
Day-3: Mahi-Mahi #2 3ft lenght 8 lbs.
Day 3: Blue Note sailing a downwind course in the blue waters of the Atlantic.
