Wednesday 21st November….
Having managed to fill up with water in time, we left our berth and headed out towards the start line. Unfortunately the holding tank was blocked again so we had to anchor in the bay to do a proper fix. This involved going into the water and back feeding pressurised air through the skin fitting. It looks perfect now but we will keep an eye on it every few days.
The start was uneventful as the wind was so light, there is wind forecast for Thursday evening onwards so mostly motoring until a whiff of breeze arrives. This isn’t ideal as diesel is precious!
Last night we managed to catch our first fish, a tuna weighing about 4 kilos, which meant we had fresh tuna steaks and rice for dinner! This morning we caught a Mahi Mahi weighing about 2.5 kilos which has been filleted for tonights dinner. The line won’t be going out again today as there’s no point catching fish every day.
Crew blogs will continue with the next instalment.
