Spirits were high as the crew celebrated the half way mark this evening. Dressed in party wear to suit the occasion, freshly made sangria was served with even fresher sushi. Derek and Doug had landed another dorado, some of which was served raw with either lime juice or wasabi, a Japanese horseradish sauce. It was truly delicious. This was followed by steak and home made potato wedges, and to finish, the last of Doug's legendary raspberry and chocolate cheesecake. The sky turned from blue to a majestic array of reds as the sun went down and the crew prepared for the night watch.
Slightly stronger winds have been enjoyed recently and progress has been good.
