Life & Travels Afloat in our Moody
One question that is frequently asked is ‘what is it like out there?’ Now we like an enormous can make a few comments. In calm weather, it is a gigantic infinity pool, because there is no visible end to it. Clouds seemingly rise out of the water, the sun is reflected in crystaline waters, and glitters at night with the stars. You get to see the celestial sky in its full glory with zero light pollution from man.
We have not seen another boat for about 4 days, although there was one light in the distance a couple of nights ago. As I write this, we are just clicking onto 1,500nm to St Lucia, having already sailed nearly that far since leaving the Canaries. However we are struggling to make good speed due to the very light winds. The forecast is for nearly no wind for the next few days… By the time you read this, the first of the huge racing boats will have already arrived at the finish. No matter, it is so beautiful out here, and tomorrow might be the time for a swim!
Dorado for supper again tonight! Annemarie let the line out and nothing bit for ages. To rub it in, there was a dorado swimming along at the surface at the stern where we were trailing a mesh bag to clean it! Anyway, about 30 mins later, supper was hooked.
