28 Jan – 3rd Feb

Most of this trip we had very light winds in fact, we used the MPS (Multi-purpose sail) for 4 days straight – even carried it overnight. First 2 days of the trip we were wing and wing, and sailing 6kts or more, but then we lost the wind. Boomerang had left a day before us and Frida were sailing behind. Can’t see them but know they’re both out there. Phil got a massive fish on the line, it took heaps of line straight down and there was nothing Phil could do to get it up, eventually it just stopped, and even then he couldn’t pull it in. Then suddenly the line snapped and both were free. Not worried about losing something that big – don’t want to even try and land it. Arrived Ascension 3rd Feb.
