Location: Underway to Jamaica

As of today we are one third of the way through our journey, it’s hard to believe it’s already been a month but at the same time it feels like it has been so much longer. Today we also managed to go two hundred miles in a day, not in an especially straight two hundred miles but two hundred miles all the same. That may not sound all that impressive when compared to a plane or even a car, but on a sailboat it is practically across the water. We are really starting to get the hang of this whole sailing thing. There is even a small competition going as to who will get to be the helmsman for our race during classics week.

The day itself was a usual day underway, watches throughout the night and then classes and watches throughout the day. One of our classes was the practical aspect of our first responders course, we must have killed that creepy torso dummy at least a dozen times. If you ever see us performing CPR and notice that we are doing a little dance and mumbling the lyrics to Queen’s – Another One Bites The Dust – we aren’t crazy it’s just how we learned it — and it works, we swear. Meanwhile we sail closer and closer to Jamaica, seeing dolphins and whales along the way.
