Nets, nothing but nets. This is tunny net water and they are everywhere and almost ivisible to see. We were nicely sailing with the kite, when we saw some fishermen waving frantically because we were about to cross their floating tuna nets. It would have spelled big trouble for us and the nets. We had a real scramble to take the spinnaker down and then figure out how to avoid the nets. As it turned out, we had to cross the trawlers path in front of it. Trouble was, she was moving at speed away from us, so we had to catch up and then cross. Needless to say there was a lot of yelling and special finger exercises when we got close enough to see the red in each others eyes
