Day 18

Last night we had a second visit by a large pod of dolphins. Common, spinner, and another type with a pink nose we’ve never seen before. They seemed to be having as much fun with their visit as we did. Sans squalls, night watch was clear and mellow. The day sail was lovely, ocean state was still a bit bumpy but not rough enough to deter naps, reading, scenery-soaking, tortilla española and French onion soup. We hit 170 nm in a 24-hour period, one of our all-time records. We are loving the southern trades and this Equatorial ocean current pushing us in our favor!

Good night everyone. Until tomorrow, Bravo out.
