Galapagos – Marquesas – Day 5

Day 5: 20.04.18 1800 UTC, 1200 BoatTime (Will change to UTC-7 at noon today)
Position: 6:08S 99:05W COG: 250 SOG: 5,6(average 24 hrs) Wind:8-15 kn SE Sailed distance: 661 Sailed last 24 hours: 134 Distance to Fatu Hiva: 2363
Weather: Overcast and scattered rainshowers and clear sky. Changing winds both speed and direction.
Sea state: 1.5 – 2.0 m swell from SE. A bit rolly and unorganized with the showers.
Fishing: Two nice Wahoo/Mahi Mahi/Dolphin Fish. Finally! But lost another squid lure to something really big, again.
Sailing in varied winds trying to match a 250-270 course. Using the engine to charge and make water. Speeds from 4 – 7 knots depending on angle of attack. Still together with CsB even though they are 5nm in front after having sailed faster through the night.
All is well.

I am the Captain of this ship, and I have my Wife´s permission to say so!
