Atlantic Crossing Day 22 - Things That Go Bump in the Night

Today while bringing in the spinnaker pole and moving the jib to starboard I found a squid on deck. For some reason squid jump out of the water and sometimes land on Solstice. During this passage we've had three flying fish land on deck at night. I feel sorry for the fish and the squid. Happily swimming and flying along then WHAM! 15 tons of fiberglass.

Today was a good sailing day. First of all, nothing broke. We had good winds all day. We also had a front pass over that brought enough rain to nicely rinse Solstice. The low pressure just north of the Azores is moving to the NE faster than previously forecasted. We are now heading on a NE course directly for Flores, Azores.

All is well aboard Solstice.
