Happy Saturday to everyone!
We are currently at 6:37.192S 121:40.151W and winds are still light at about 9 to 13 knots so we are making still about 6 knots on average. But still sailing and flying the spinnaker. No fish today, but I completely left off the blog yesterday the fact that we saw a humpback whale! It was just off the port side of the boat, about 80 foot away and we could see the whole back! That was pretty awesome. We could only see the one but we figure there were more.
But all is well and we continue to make progress. We had a nice night last night and had fewer clouds so there were lots of starts and the guys were able to see the Southern Cross. We flew the spinnaker all night so it was pretty quiet with no noise from the boom and just that big ole sail pulling us along.
We are about the same longitude as San Francisco so we are trying to set back our time gradually so that we do not have to take the 4 or 5 hour set back at one time....lol
Miss and love you!
