The lunch yesterday with the Mahi-Mahi was delicious. Simple sauce with ginger, garlic, balsamic vinegar, honey and soy sauce served with rice and of course with a cold Italian Pinot Grigio.
We had busy night with a series of squall that tested our reef/shake a reef skills.
This morning the sky is overcast (there is an occluded front in between us and Antigua) but the wind steady at 16 kts.
Of course as we were preparing lunch a large tuna (about 22 inches) interrupted our preparation.
The tuna is now filet in the fridge ready for tomorrow lunch.
Yesterday Mahi-Mahi lunch.
Sailing under an overcast sky with full main and full jib.
A catch of the day: believed to be a big-eye tuna.
