Sea Child - Log Day 5, on course to St Lucia

SEA CHILD and her awesome crew are making great time across the Atlantic
to St. Lucia! In the past two days, we have jibed with CYGNUS and this
morning while we were holding course of 285, ANNA sailed south just past
our stern.  S'ARENELLA is to our port, with a heading very similar to
SEA CHILD! Its crazy that we are sailing across such a huge ocean and
right in our neighborhood are other ARC yachts as well.  We have been
trying to participate in the net activities, but our distance from the
main fleet makes it impossible.  SILHOUETTE has taken the place of SEA
CHILD in the daily net.  Our fresh food are still holding up and we are
eating incredibly well! The only bummer is that we are sailing too fast
to put out fishing lines, though it is fun to hear about BIMBLE catching
a nice tuna and enjoying their "galley sushi"! We have talked to our
friends on BIMBLE and SAORSA, both with their bean bags on the bow. 
Perhaps when we get closer to the west end of the course we will be able
to sit on the bow and enjoy a good read or two.  Right now the bows are
wet and home to the dozen or so flying fish we seem to attract.

The seas are favorable for SEA CHILD to run steady at 11 knots, and just
last night, Carter hit the top speed of 22 knots! Oh how we love to play
on the Atlantic Ocean!  Its beautiful out here, almost to the mid way mark.
