This is going to have to be a short and sweet update as I am feeling quite seasick. The waves have been picking up over the past few hours with a few light showers. Today has been a relaxing day filled with studying and naps. We have not seen another sailing vessel or boat of any kind in about a week. It is the weirdest, coolest, scariest, most amazing feeling. It’s just the 32 of us casually crossing an entire ocean alone. It still blows my mind.
We are so close to Mauritius, and if all goes well, we should be there by Saturday morning. Many people are excited to stack up on snacks and toiletries. This two-week passage has eaten up all of our Oreos and mentos!
Our chefs made Argo-style sushi with the Skipjack tuna steaks we caught yesterday. It was a success. Today ended with a hilariously slippery dish pit as the waves rocked salty dishwater all over the deck. It was dangerously fun! Tina had a container of leftover lasagna fall into her hatch and onto her pillow last night. It apparently wasn’t the weirdest thing to have fallen through her hatch!
We are finally all on the countdown to Mauritius. Many of us just can’t wait to sleep without rocking from one side of the cabin to the other. We are all enjoying these last few hours of sailing until we hit land.
We are having the best time enjoying where we are.
Sending love Mom, Dad, J, G, & F
