Our position is...
22 degrees 48 minutes North, 22 degrees 28 minutes West. We are going 6.8 knots under spinnaker and are on a course of 272 degrees true. The wind is 12 knots app. off the stb. quarter. The sky has been filled with small, puffy clouds all day and it is 77.7 degrees down below. The seas have been calm all day. We have been flying the spinnaker almost all day. We plan to fly the spinnaker all night as well which is a first for us. It looks like we have run into Columbus's trades so we have turned and are now heading straight for Bequia. Another reason we have turned is that it puts the wind in a more favorable position for our Asymmetrical spinnaker. I thought it prudent to bring in my lines when we put the spinnaker out, there is no fast or good way to slow down if I caught something, so I have nothing to report on my fishing. We had another much smaller green flash this evening but I think the highlight of the day was standing on the bow under the silent power of our spinnaker watching dolphins play in our bow wake and swim all around us. Another highlight was our dinner of homemade manicotti. We were able to enjoy this scrumptious delight as my mom made up and froze twenty days worth of dinners before we left from Gibraltar. I hope all is well back in the 'States.
