Spinnaker is flying

We put up the spinnaker this morning and have it flying in 8 to 11 knots of wind.  We are making good speed - 5 to 6 knots.  Over night we had good winds and had a new record for this trip going 131 nautical miles toward our destination in 24 hours.  Perhaps with the spinnaker up today and good winds overnight we can set another record. 

The day started in cloud and turned sunny with blue skies.  Around 11 the clouds returned with rain or drizzle but no squalls to contend with yet.

On the fishing front we had a big one on the line and it took the hook and most of the line so fishing is done for now unless we decide to go with a very low test line. Very disappointing.

We await the arrival of the 12 to 15 knot trade winds, which will hopefully occur in a few days.
