The Big Baracuda

We had a superb down wind sail from St Annes to Grand Anse yesterday.
It took us about 3 hours the wind was strong but a little shifty so we had to put in a couple gybes.
The main event was catching a very large and very angry baracuda which took both of us to land.
I have been replacing the nylon traces on the lures with wire. This certainly seems to help.
The baracuda had very large teeth so I was very careful removing the hook with my largest pliers.
The baracuda was too old to eat so we threw him back.
In Grand Anse, Mandy did a mamouth swim to the beach and back whist I replaced one of the outhaul blocks.
In the evening we had drinks onboard Brisa with Luma.
