still sailing...

Happy Birthday Lexi!
I'm still trying to catch her birthday dinner.
I hooked a fish yesterday but it broke my 80lb line immediately.
The wind has let up so were now traveling at about 5 kts.
We have had good success with the HF radio and have been able to communicate with other sailboats in transit and throughout Central America.
Position as of 1000 CDT (1500)
N 01*06'
W 086*14'
heading 205*
speed 5 kts
wind 8-10 kts. SSE
1-2' waves
partly cloudy skies and clearing.

All is well. The forecast looks as though we may have to motor the last 250 miles.

  1. Happy happy joy joy! Hope you had a nice birthday, we did a big skate ski today and thought of you guys.

  2. Happy Birthday, Lexi! Wish we could swing by with a bottle of wine to check out this year's cake and celebrate. We will have to content ourselves on drinking the wine in your honor. Don't thanks us; least we can do :). Miss you guys.
