Day 1

29 March 2013
Neptune has been kind to us on the first day of our trip - we couldn't have asked for anything more. We left as the soon as the afternoon thermal picked up and we were able to sail immediately. For the first 24 hours we've had the luxury of 10 - 12 knot winds and a starboard beam reach (the most favored and often the fastest point of sail). With a full main and genoa we're averaging 5-6 knots of boat speed directly towards our destination. Sunny and warm, we were able to sail all day in just T shirts and shorts. We tried out our first 6 hour night watch schedule which is longer than the typical watch. We decided to try this to allow our partner a solid sleep in between watches. So far so good, thank goodness for ebooks, podcasts and music! Mid afternoon we noticed a flock of seabirds nearby, followed almost immediately by a pod of dolphins. Before we were able to pull out our camera, a tuna struck our fishing line which we had set earlier. Talk about everything happening at once! We successfully landed the tuna, so the thawing chicken will have to wait for another day.
