The second halve of the trip took 2 full days.. Not enough wind and in the end also from wrong direction..
The Mercedes (Iron sail) finished the trip off in a 10 hrs run..
Rocna dropped at 1500...

First and only 'catch' jumped on board its self after just 5 minutes..
Lure lost and alcohol to send 'fish' quickly off by putting some Gin in their gills..

Reading Material.. normally a book a day.. This time only halve a book, did a lot of 'resting'.. In the Hurricane season the Caribbean Sea is desolated.. In 70 hours at sea I really saw ONLY 1 other boat, a small container boat passing at a few 100m.. Nothing else, not even at far distance.. nothing.
I got halfway in this book about Cees de Bruyn Kops...
