battling the weather dogs
24 August 2010 | heading NW!
Once again the GRIBs and forecasts are doing their level best to thwart us. All forecasts and GRIBs viewed prior to departure showed solid E winds for several days, as far north as 30 deg. We've yet to find them - instead we are struggling to go north in consistent NE winds, so we are being pushed further west than we'd like. Sound familiar? Otherwise all is well. Paul has had the lines out, and we had strikes on both lines at the same time. Fortunately we only landed one, as there is a limit to how much Mahi Mahi three blokes can eat while it is fresh. Keith did a fine job manning the filet knife and the stove. More soon. Keep whistling. Team Mulan
