Fishing, no luck. (Caught a very small one that we let out.) 

Saw a school of dolphins in the distance this morning.

After three  or four hours of genaker sailing yesterday the spinnaker halyard broke! The halyard was new last year, so that was ok, but there is something wrong up in the mast that “chews” the halyard. Shit.

Alutia and we tried to reach each other this morning, but the connection was almost nonexistent.

Another two nights…
