Wethomi - Wahoo day on Wethomi
On the "road" again. After 5 month of cruising the caribbean islands we are now on the ocean once more. Back home to the mediterranean sea. After a nice start at Tortola where we crossed the starting line under parasailor we soon reached the open sea. It took us a while to get into the long range modus again. But once our Monitor windsteering had taken over the helm, the watergenerator was running, the fishing line was out and the sails were set we could lean back and enjoy the wide open ocean. Good reaching winds were pushing us fast to Bermuda. The waves were stressing our stomachs. The sky was beautiful.
Two days of wonderful sailing were followed by "Jokel"-days. Jokel is our reliable diesel engine and as the wind went sleeping he took over.
Yesterday it was so calm that we stopped the boat completely and went swimming. Wonderful. 5500 meters of dark blue water under us.
Then the highlight of the day: A 95cm Wahoo found its way into our cockpit. A beautiful fish. But also delicious. Shashimi and cevice and fish fillets en masse.
What else happened?
Had fresh bread. Sailed under a near full moon. Thundershowers. Visiting birds.
380 NM to Bermuda
