Greetings from yacht Ensemble!
Another day of slow but steady sailing. Wind is sitting at about 10 knots from the East - with an easy sea - and we're making about 5-6 knots. Weather has been fine and warm. We only have 600 nm to go - so should reach the Marquesas in 4 days (provided the wind holds).
On the fishing front - the flying fish have disappeared - and we caught a tuna. Joel landed the 1.5 kg bonito. Unfortunately - just when we had sushi on our minds - while filleting the fish we came across a whole lot of worms and decided better to be safe than sorry and through the fish overboard... ;-( Maybe better luck today.
Magali has been perfecting her home made pizza and Joel and I got stuck with the role of 'taste testers' for Magali's new chocolate pizzas - one with the traditional dark Belgian chocolate - and the other with Mars bars. My vote was for the Mars Bar pizza (hands down). We've agreed to set up the Wii so we can start burning off some of the food...
So another day of sailing...We can't believe how fast the two weeks has gone - but are certainly looking forward to getting there.
