Tatt av vinden

At the time we should start dinner yesterday the wind turned against us. And so did the current. We have motorsailed since then. The night was a little unplesant, but the day is nice, even if we motorsail and have the wind on the nose, just so we are able to keep a course directly for Galapagos. We hope to be there in three days, but we have to reach Baquerizo Moreno before sunset.
The night showed us that we are in the doldrums, the ITCZ - the intertropical convergence zone. Lightning and more unpredictable winds.
Today we have done som small maintenance project and keep the lure out. Yesterday we lost the lure to some big creature that we never saw.
