Day 3

Glorious sailing today. We worked a bit at it, getting both the spinnaker and the genoa poled out at one stage, using the boom for a pole on the spinnaker, netting us 4 knots of boat speed...

The wind has filled in now and we have a nice 10 knots from the E pushing us along at 5.5 knots. The seas are very calm.

The Captain won the skipbo games today so all is right in the world. We have seen a nice pod of dolphins and came across two sailboats today. Fishing was a bust again as we caught something all to big again loosing all line and our last lure.

Position 13.13s, 143.41w.
