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

Yesterday, just as we exit the Gulf stream, we set the lure in the water. Soon after the first Mahi-Mahi
offered himself to Blue Note.
Therefore today we will have our first lunch with Mahi-Mahi served with rice and Pinot Grigio.
The last 24 hours have been a continuous motor-sailing, since winds have been absent during the night and still very weak (5 kts)
and variable during the day.
Forecast are for winds to come from the East during the night and build by tomorrow to a comfortable 10-15 kts.


The catch of our 1st Mahi-Mahi. (We could not download the photo from Riccardo iPhone to the Windows laptop ... thank you Apple)
