Around The World Voyage : Commentary : Leg 3

April 24, 2002

Today, Wednesday is our third day at sea, we are currently making good time toward Cape Verde in light Southwest winds with calm seas. Justin just brought the boat to life a few minutes ago with the sound of line peeling off the reel.We were sure that tonight was going to be the night for the big fish dinner.....the hamburger meat is now starting to thaw, sun fish are not edible.

It's been a domestic day aboard, washing the boat and doing laundry. We are not very successful keeping the exterior free from the red dust that originates in the African interior, it arrives and deposits itself everywhere, its in the rain and in the breeze.We are looking for an early morning arrival in the Cape Verde Islands on Saturday, 27 April, 2002.
