Analogous to waiting for a bus, after trying to catch a fish for over 1000 miles of ocean sailing, two came along at once. Admittedly they aren’t the size of sea creature that will pull your boat backwards Jaws-style. But each is big enough for dinner for two, so I’m very pleased.
Wind is still in short supply, but the forecast model is suggesting some wind from the NE tomorrow. And the trade winds should come off strike on Monday.
It’s quiet out here. The only vessel we had for company last night is a Chinese trawler. Maria watched this in the early hours of the morning hoovering up fish to our right and behind us.
We are now 1750 NM from Barbados. Wind is blowing at 1.3 Knots. And all is well aboard Lady Jane.
