The days of "first experiences" in open sea are the three behind us - but as expected, our "enterprise" is ready for everything to come and nothing can stop us now!
The downwind sail got its first damages perfectly fixed by our sewing team Felice and Sandra with their circumnavigation tested, old Bernina (see picture). Great job!
And there's the fishing - a story on its own! Yehuda, our skilled fisherman, caught finally "Verdia", our very first Dolphin (see picture). She was big enough for all of us and we enjoyed a very delicious fish meal prepared by Jürg. After three days on sea we know, that we'll have approx. two fish on board out of five fish on the hook. For the moment the fishing is inactive (by order), because we have already enough on board, even Harry let them sometimes go back to the sea without notice ;-)
Ah, and there is the sailing too: We do our best to sail conveniently fast without too much breakages and danger. However, we are just partly successful - since day two our wind instruments are gone and we sail after our noses, which works quite well depending on the nose in charge ;-) Every day we repair any kind of things, mostly unimportant ones, fortunately.
And as mentioned in the title: The "Boingo"-Team is just great! Every single member of the team found its unique role, which fits well with all others. We are in perfect function now and are looking forward to more great days in perfect isolation.Fel-San-komp
