We saw two more whales!!!
Most photos courtesy of Nathan
Curious little fellows, probably fishing?
They were jumping all over the place
Not sure what they were after
Red Sky at the finish. We botched that one!
Elise back at the dock
With her battle flag
Doing my bit for boat speed
While Nathan is doing his bit
Finally some wind
Getting to the flood current
Very nice raft-up in Drakes Bay!!
Boats of all sizes joined up
RedSky was the center of our raft - and his anchor took most of the load...
Elise got an early dinner ready
Getting ready for dinner
And Tortuga baked warm banana bread and apple crumble!!! Delicious!!!
A sleepy Nathan
Getting ready to go for the day
Hydrating on the upwind leg
Disturbing the peace
Entering the Bay
We stayed offshore to enjoy better winds but the extra distance proved to be so so good and we finished in the middle of the pack
Second time out of the gate post injury
We saw two whales!!!
We saw mama birds and baby birds everywhere
A smiling Nathan
on our way to the finish
