Passage one complete! β›΅πŸŒ

8 days, over a 1000 miles and we have crossed the carribean sea. 🌊   Luckily the weather has been pretty kind.. we had consistent 20-25 knots ENE, occasionally gusting 30. Although we did spot 40 when Josh was in the shower hhaha.  Sailing downwind using only the genoa (front sail ) poled out made for a super safe and relatively easy first passage.

That said the swell has been horrendous! Sleeping whilst constantly being rolled over has been interesting and a few dinners have been quite a challenge!

Sadly apart from a few flying fish not much wildlife seen at all.. I’m surprised we didn’t see much dolphins on such a long passage… although David thinks he saw a shark.Β  But I’m trying not to think about that!

The stars on night watches have been phenomenal and Josh has been teaching me the constallations. Hoping to know them all by the end of our pacific adventure. β˜„

We’re all very much looking forward to a rest and some time on land now. Although i am writing this at 3am because I’m currently still in watch mode πŸ˜‚
