Sailing Around The World

Day 14 Galapagos to Marquesas Island 5/13/13

Hope everybody had a great Mothers Day and weekend. I am still out in the middle of Pacific Ocean with about 1130 nautical miles to go. We sailed through the night with the Spinnaker up and most of today with an average speed of 8 knots. But we took down the spinnaker for tonight because the wind is up to 20 knots already and the sky is full of squall clouds which I am guessing should make for a fun night. Nothing like sailing through a storm when you can’t see it! On a good note I did see a pod of 50 or more Dolphins swimming and jumping all around Dragonsbane. I was a little nervous sailing through the pod but they seem to enjoy the company. I also baked a loaf of fresh bread and gambled on adding 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, it worked out well. The hardest thing was getting the dough to rise when the boat was moving all over the place. But it tasted great with our chicken and canned yams.

Current location: 7deg 10.4min South, 121deg 27.6min West
