Our position is...
13 degrees 25 minutes North, 54 degrees 12 minutes West. We are going 5.6 knots motoring and are on a course of 294 degrees true. The wind is 18 knots apparent from apx. 070. There is about 60% cloud cover and it is 83.8 degrees down below. The swell was large this morning, around 10 ft, but has gotten smaller as the day has progressed. We just took down the spinnaker, as it is getting dark and the wind is still iffy, and are now motoring. All day, under spinnaker, we have probably averaged about 7.8 knots but we touched ten for a couple seconds two times today and have seen an awfully large amount of 8ts. We just had the first beautiful sunset of our Atlantic crossing. Changing, in bright bands that stretched perpendicular out in front of us, from bright yellow, to orange, and, finally to hot pink beckoning us west to our destination. Yesterday I neglected to mention that I caught a small little tunny and fought another extremely large fish for about five minutes before the hook came out of its mouth. So I tempted both prey and predator on the same lure. Interesting. I wish I could tempt more medium sized fish like that wahoo to my lures! For some reason, this crossing, it seems I have only been able to temp to my lures the biggest and smallest fish I have ever had on the end of my lines.
