We had a very good run yesterday night making the highest (so far) 24-hour run of 180 miles (i.e. 7.5 kts average).
Today the sun is back and the winds decreased to about 13 kts. The lure is back in the water just before sending this email we caught a 32 inches Mahi-Mahi that will provide us a delightful lunch.
As usual no traffic in the Atlantic with the only sporadic cargo ship appearing on the AIS. The moonless night was full of peaceful starts.
Catch of the day: a 32 inches Mahi-Mahi.
Today (Nov 16) sunny day in the Atlantic.
