2nd Full Day 120 miles
16 March 2009 | 200 Miles off Mexico

The surprise regarding wind is that it has been steady all night, and then when the sun comes up, it goes light and variable. Fifty Spotted Dolphins treated us to a visit around the boat. They were feeding, and schools of flying fish were bursting from the water in an effort to get away. This morning we saw several Masked Boobies investigating our wake for food that has been stirred up. This morning we ran the engine in light air, to charge the batteries, run the watermaker (6+ gallons), and recharge the batteries. We're trying to help the Puddle Jump Radio Net choose a frequency that will serve us all. One of the issues is as the fleet spreads out, we can't all use the same frequency due to the time of day and propagation. About ten boats are communicating at 1500Z on 8.188 mgz and 4.146 mgz afterward. Love to all!
