We had a great sail for part of the afternoon and part of the evening. Around 9:00pm the wind died and the iron sail has been propelling us southward since. Despite the engine, it was a beautiful clear night with a full moon and lots of stars. We are all pretty much up and enjoyed this morning's beautiful sunrise and we celebrated the mellow seas with pancakes and bacon.
This Mahi-mahi was let go
It did not "get away"
Bryce caught his first mahi-mahi (also called dorado or dolphin fish depending on where you are), but the beautiful creature was a small one so we threw it back. He also caught two more skip jacks and bird. The bird picked up the lure once, then came back and when it tried again got caught on the hook. Now we know where the term, "bird brain" comes from. Brad carefully removed the hook and off flew the bird into the Big Blue.
