Location: underway

The skies are generally clear, and the stars are bright! A Minke whale joined us early in the afternoon, making passes only feet away alongside, remaining for a few hoursan escort for our arrival in the Caribbean, perhaps. At dinner, we submitted our estimates on the time and nature of our first sight of land, along with $1 for the pot; by tomorrow night or the next morning, we should have a winner. Doug spotted a bottle six days ago. Mars is still in Gemini.
