La Capitana - Log 2, Fish but no wind Mid-Atlantic
The crew has enjoyed swimming and fishing during the first week from CaboVerde towards St. Lucia. Skies have been cloudy with rain showers. The fewsqualls gave some welcomed wind gusts in addition to the very moderate or nowind at all. The motor has been on and off almost every day and the dieselsituation starts worrying a little. When do we get some wind?! This is asailboat! The YB tracker SMS option has been valuable to find out a receipe forthe otherwise tasteless green food bananas. (Thanks Kia and Kia). Mahi-mahi hasbeen served strait out of the sea and right now we expect to get some tuna onthe two lines dangling on the stern. The original ETA (29.11.) for St. Luciaseems to be right now 1.12. bur who knows.... Mikko and Tuija take a dip in the28C degree Atlantic Ocean.. read more...
