Lively Ocean

Today we’ve had beautiful light-wind sailing with calm seas, small fishies jumping, big fishies jumping after them and birds hectically catching fish. We also caught a tuna in that bruhaha. Very often we feel like in a lifeless desert out on the ocean, so today was a pleasant experience. Unfortunately our ancient gennacker blew out just a few minutes after we had set it (a long awaited casualty), so we’re going very slowly (3 to 4 knots). The latest grib file threatens with NE wind instead of the promised SE that we need to sail up to Tahiti (yep, that’s NE of us…). We’ve been looking at satellite pictures and cruising guides of the Iles Australes this afternoon–just in case.
