The wind is nothing more than a fluttering breeze today so we are motoring along at a steady 6-6.5 knots. We can see another ARC boat, Neuroseas, on the horizon. As we get closer to St Lucia, we expect to see more of our friends as the fleet begins to converge on the final destination.
We’ve made good use of the calm seas by preparing some sashimi. The huge yellow fin tuna we caught last week has been frozen at -18c for over 72 hours now, enough to kill off any parasites. This is the method that the Japanese follow to ensure that their raw fish is safe. For dinner this evening, we’ll enjoy a ribeye steak and Captain has requested bacon, eggs, Cumberland sausages and black pudding for his birthday breakfast tomorrow. If all goes to plan, this will be our final night at sea.image1
