Sailing Around The World

Day 3 Passage to Rodrigues Is. “Fish On”

The good news is that this morning I caught two little tunas but enough for a good dinner and Sushi rolls. Yesterday was exciting because the swells were large enough that you could sail down into the trough like you were driving down a city block looking at swells on both side of the boat. It was like sailing in tunnels with 4 to 5 meter swells. The wind was up and down between 20 to 30 knots and we all got knocked around the inside of the boat. I suffered a pretty big lump on my back after I fell into the edge of the galley rail. We are all looking pretty black and blue but making it across the Indian Ocean all the same.

Current Position: UTC 22:53 13deg 12.3min South, 92deg 26.3min East, COG 250deg-M, SOG 6kts, Swell 2 meters, Sunny

Thanks,

Jacques
