Sailing Around The World

Day Two Caribbean Sea!

Day two in the Caribbean Sea is much like the last. The swells are starting to grow larger up to 7 feet. The wind is steady at 18 knots and we are cursing between 5.5 to 6.5 knots with the wind at our back with 200 nautical miles under our belt. The nearest spit of land is 95 nautical miles away. Some fun news is that I caught a tuna off the back of Dragonsbane. Looks like I have close to 2 lbs of fresh Tuna to eat.

Last night the moon was so bright I could see the horizon 10 miles off. The star where very bright and the only sound was Dragonsbane rushing through the water. I enjoyed my evening watch and then my morning watch as I sun came up.

Current Position: 13 deg 15.75min North, 63deg 52.56min West

    Enjoy the tuna. Use those wonderful spices from the West Indies to add a bit of Caribbean flavor!! Love you lots, Mom.

    Not gonna lie, Jacques – I am very jealous. I have been keeping up with this and some of these pictures and stories are awesome. What’s more depressing is that I just got done updating myself through all of your latest posts, then got an email from two people asking about payment from B.R.

    How depressing is that? Oh well…as always watch out for pirates and sharks.
