Another day. More water. We are sailing at 7.5 kts with a bit of help from the equatorial current. COG is 249Mag. We regularly change course now, so that whenever we can head west, we do. Then when the wind gets lighter or the wind backs, we can point more southerly. Just trying to keep the boat speed up and the comfort level up. The winds are about 14kts. The have been oscillating between about 12 and 19. Occasionally a little less and occasionally a little higher.
We decided to put the fishing lines in, and we caught a lovely Mahi Mahi within abougt 2hrs. Enough for a lunch and a dinner for the 4 of us. We will put the lines back in when we feel like having more fish.
Today Amy and the kids have been watching a school of tuna surf in our wake, pretty neat sight.
All is well.
Oh, I forgot, I was going to mention when we got further west than Duluth, MN. It was only a couple of days ago. We are nearing 100w. Whiich is about the longitude of Bismarck, ND. Duluth is at about 92west and is actually almost due north of the Galapagos--it is actually slightly west of the Galapagos. The Galapagos are around 90west. For as long as we've been sailing west, we've only made it into the western Midwest!!
