Detailed Track (50 is the maximum number of point, i.e. once the last point reaches 50, the last point always is 50):
Everyone wake up before midnight local time to celebrate the arrival of the new year with a bottle of Italian Spumante.
We checked that no AIS ship were in the area and on VHF, after which we fire an expired flare in celebration.
A useful exercise by itself.
Today the Mahi lure is back in the water hoping to get one last Mahi-Mahi before making landfall sometime tomorrow later afternoon.
