Detailed Track (50 is the maximum number of point, i.e. once the last point reaches 50, the last point always is 50):
In the afternoon of Christmas the winds had gone down and we had to motor until about 10pm when a light breeze started to develop.
This morning we wake up to a beautiful blue sky and deep blue water. A true delight. We sailed and start to fish thru the Sargasso sea.
Mostly we caught lots of Sargasso but at one point a Mahi Mahi offered himself to Blue Note.
The retrieve was made even more difficult by the large amount of heavy Sargasso that the fish was dragging with him.
The Blue Water Blue Sky of the Atlantic Ocean.
