Adele 1 - Adele 1 log - Day 18 - Unpredictable winds and Wahoo

Evening all,

At the end of our seventh day at sea and we have spent the last two days cursing the unpredictable winds. This morning the wind speeds rose up to 14 knots for a few hours and we dared to hope that this was the start of favourable conditions. We revelled in the breeze for a few hours this morning until lunch came around and forced us to a crawl, by the time evening has come about we have the engines back on and are back to crossing our fingers for better wind tomorrow.
On a more positive note we did manage to bring in a smallish Wahoo today on one of the lines (Photo attached, it was bigger than it looks in the photo, promise) which made for a very nice lunch. Cooked up by Paul who seems to be taking most of the cheffing on himself to no complaints from myself or Drew as he is doing a bloody good job of it! (Although it does leave me doing the dishes most days, the curse of being an uninspired cook myself I suppose).
Anyone who reads this do us a favour and cross your fingers for decent winds!

Cheers all!

Adele 1 crew
