Of Special Interest:.
• Found several little flying fish on deck this morning.
• Alan caught a 2 ½ lb./1+ kg yellow fin tuna (a jack?) and landed it perfectly! We doused it with rum and hope to catch its brother tomorrow and have them both for lunch.
‘Delight of the day’: Alan for sorting out our brake (gybe preventer) and for being the only crew member to provide food and not just eat it!
