Our position is...
35 degrees 22 minutes North, 06 degrees 15 minutes West. We are going 7.2 Knts. and are on a course of 215 degrees true. This morning we left from our anchorage off the airport in Gibraltar (36 degrees 09 minutes North, 05 degrees 21 minutes West) on an overnighter to Casablanca, Morrocco (33 degrees 37 minutes North, 07 degrees 33 minutes West). We expect to arrive in Casablanca tomorrow afternoon. We have entered our home waters (considering the US and the end of our circumnavigation home)! The seas are semi calm but a little bit wishy washy and the wind is 11 Knts apparent. The skies have been clear all day and it is 76.6 degrees down below. Early this afternoon we had bottlenose dolphins on the bow that were at least eight feet long. At the same time common dolphins and bottlenose jumped all around us in what appeared to be a feeding frenzy. As far as fishing goes I put out a green/blue Ilander Sea Star and blue feather (the blue feather farthest out and subsurface and the Ilander Sea Star closer and allowed to come to the surface every few seconds or so) but caught nothing.:(
