The night was peaceful, the boat is moving slowly but we are still blessed with the weather, the sea is incredibly beautiful.
A light wind swells the sails.
Since we left Réunion, we have only used the engine for one hour, only to get out of the Port and recharge the boat’s batteries.
Frédéric performs a micro plastic survey, while Bertrand prepares us for breakfast, banana fritters, which will be swallowed up by the crew in a few minutes.
At the end of the morning, a fish bit the hook but fled in extremis. The fish carry will not be for this noon!
A moment later, we observe clouds of water vapor in the distance, they are sperm whales! We tack and try to follow them but they continue their journey and stay away from the boat.
We resume our course towards Sainte Marie Island.
At the end of the day, Bertrand finally fishes for a barracuda after 3 days of unsuccessful waiting. Fortunately, we have good food reserves and aren’t counting on fishing for dinner tonight.
