Yesterday 3rd December we passed the half way point. From here it is all down hill. We have had a great couple of days wind wise. Now that we can't use the new genoa winged out the port side, we were starting to dread the easterly but is hasn't happened as yet and for the last couple of days have been beam reaching. I think we did around 190nm yesterday which is great.
The 3rd of December is a MONDAY and Mondays have been Irene's washing day since we were first married and nothing is going to stop that at sea. Two loads through the machine and a clothes line on the aft deck. Thanks goodness no other yachts are around it would have been embarrassing looking like a junk!
But it did give me a reason to take a photo!
Tried the fishing line but to no avail! Others around us are catching Dorado, Mahi Mahi & Tuna. Maybe tomorrow!
