Nice sailing conditions beam reaching. The waves were finally synchronized with the wind making the trip more comfortable as well. Making some grounds and setting the KEA 24-hour record of 147 nm (you are right; we are really not that quick).
Sea state: 0,5 – 1,5 m.
Fishing: Hooked yet another really big “monster” that made a big splashing show before it took of with the lure.
All is well.
