Day 4: Pacific Ocean Crossing

All onboard are doing well.

We had a slow day (Thursday) with winds hovering around 5 knots. We had the spinnaker flying which gave us a little speed and we were comfortably sailing at half the speed of smell. No complaints though, with smooth sailing we were able to take deck showers, cook and the girls enjoyed playing in the cockpit. This morning (Friday) the winds seem to return a bit and with the spinnaker still up, we're making better time.

At 4am Thursday a flying fish found it's way through Lora's hatch and started dancing on her face. A few screams and most of us were in her cabin trying to figure what had happened. It's amazing how wretched one small little fish can smell.

At about midnight last night during Lora's watch she enjoyed a 45 minute dolphin show complete with dolphins flipping and spinning out of the water. She said she felt like she was up front and center at Sea World...only better, these animals are wild and free.

SV Monark has safely returned to La Cruz to figure out their SSB.

We left Monday and it's Friday and for those of us with rotating shifts the time seems to keep clipping by....for the girls, not so much. They're a little bored and we're doing the best we can to help them spend their time.

THANK YOU SV Scuba Ninja and Stray Catz for the equator crossing gift, we can't wait to use it.

Fun Terrapin Fact: All 180 eggs onboard are still doing great.
