Talulah Ruby II - Log day 2 - A bumpy start
Dear boat pals,
Not exactly the kind of first night we were expecting. With gusts of up to 40 knots we had a rather bouncy Sunday night.
As dawn broke on Monday morning, the winds dropped and first light revealed the handkerchiefs we had up in place of sails. Although the conditions were unexpected the decision to reef early stood us in good stead and Talulah held the weather well. There were no major dramas other than a couple of puke-cidents at dinner time.
We have continued to head south for more favourable winds and hopefully calmer seas.
Sunrise today brought triumph in the form of a beautiful Mahi Mahi, manfully battled by the strongest man Sophie has ever met, Alejandro. It's sacrifice now fills our fridge and our bellies.
Sadly I write this log to the background noise of the engine as we motor on in the hope that the night will bring more wind to carry us onwards.
(P.S Don't worry Mum, the eggs are fine)
