Location: Underway to Brazil in the Atlantic Ocean
Our third day underway now from St. Helena to Brazil and all is well. The crew has slipped easily back into the routine of life in watch teams and the lack of wind has allowed some interesting hobbies to evolve; some have taken to puzzles while others play monopoly, tie knots, work out, fish, or make sea salt. Today mid-morning we had the first puff of breeze since we departed St. Helena and so weve taken the opportunity to sail for a few hours, albeit at 3.5 knots. Classes and dive theory training continue as students ingest the knowledge around them, both in classes and in the hands on aspect of becoming a small part of the vast living breathing Atlantic Ocean as we all now are. The food continues to be amazing, with fresh baked bread almost every day and every variety of concoctions created by our student chefs. In short life is good out here and our needs simple, the fellowship and camaraderie of sailing this beautiful boat across a tropical ocean will always be treasured by those aboard.
