Day 12

Last night we had the biggest storm to date. We also caught the most massive fish to date; a 3.5-ft 50-lb wahoo. We got our butts kicked by both the fish and the storm. The fish managed to rip the line as we were trying to get it onboard, so we lost it. Maneuvering the boat under sail in these conditions with such a large catch will be one of this trip’s most memorable moments. So was taking a shower in the rain. It’s been raining on and off, from drizzle to deluge, from 3 knot winds to 30.

Team work makes the dream work?

 

We officially begun our ITZC crossing, and in the last hour, squalls seem to be surrounding but not over us. A break for the crew, perhaps? We are feeling pretty tired but are keeping morale high with good company, humor, music, naps, chess and fresh bread.

Good night everyone. Until tomorrow, Bravo out.
