Day 15 of our passage across the Pacific Ocean. At about 11 o’clock this morning, we were able to put the sails up again! Winds finally picked up and its nice to be moving again without hearing the sound of the engine constantly. In the afternoon, we went over some more EFR training and went over the answers from the last exam. Afterwards Carolyn talked to everyone about Captain James Cook’s adventures around the world and about French Polynesia in general. We also got to watch the movie Moana afterwards, which was a nice way to relax after classes and showers. Ian and Riley caught 3 fish this afternoon, a couple small tuna and a 28-pound monster right after. All in all, its been a pretty relaxing day, but you can tell everyone is still anxious to get to land. Its hard to believe we have sailed over 5,000 miles already. Only 5 more days to go though, which isn’t too bad compared to how long we’ve already been at sea.
