Day 13 Galapagos to Marquesas Islands 5/12/13 8pm
I realized that I used todays date for yesterdays blog post, OOPS. So yeah, its day 13 and we have lost the wind again. I am not sure why because talking on the SSB radio there are few folks with 15 knots of wind behind us at 95deg west/3deg south. But regardless we are running our spinnaker and making 4.7 knot of speed with 8.5 knots of wind. We had a productive day and we did not even get any poo on us! We made 30 gallons of water and charged up our battery bank for the evening. I also chucked 20 flying fish back in the sea and wish they would stop jumping into the boat. They keep stinking up the place! Anyway Happy Mothers Day to all those Mother out there!
Current Location: 6deg 48.30min South, 118deg 39.95min West
Flying fish dont make good cocktails, FYI!
PS. 1,250 nautical miles remaining!
Thank you and Happy Mother’s Day to your Mom, too; must be a very patient lady.
