Smooth sailing from Bahia Santa Maria. Pretty good wind for most of the day 5-7k boat speed, broad reaching....the way cruising is suppose to be. Everything about the boat is perfect, the navigation, head, food, and super well trained crew. So far we have had two hitch hikers...another larger bird landed on our bow pulpit about 30miles earlier. It looked like a type of heron. She stayed with us all the way until we were about to drop anchor.
After we dropped anchor, Sophia immediately went to the poop deck and christened it. She is adapting well to the cruising life. Crew is back to sleep for a couple of hours before we wake at 0700 to greet the sunrise and head to the fuel dock. Ohhh and how can I forget last night's green flash. I think we caught it on our cameras for you nonbelievers!
