What We Do On Sailing Days

We left St. Maarten around noon on Sunday just as the Regatta was finishing up.  We literally had to drive straight through the hundreds of boats to get on our heading.  We saw a dozen other boats doing the same thing so we went for it!  Other than reading books and listening to podcasts we sailed with some dolphins for a while, made figures and shapes out of the clouds, and caught an 18 lb. bluefin tuna.  That fish fought hard and took almost all our line, which made a long reel-in.  It sure did make some delicious fish tacos though.  We pulled into Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands around 2:00am dropped the hook and sacked out.  Even though the day was easy and the wind and waves were small, a full day of sailing takes all our energy.


  1. I loved everything about this post. The dolphins are amazing!

  2. That fish is HUGE!!! I seriously thought it was a dolphin at first glance when it was layed out on your boat. Can't wait to try your fish tacos!!! Yummm! Hope we catch a big fish while we are there!
