Sounds like all enjoyed hearing about the kite. Just a few more photos of it and we will leave it alone.
Just a view to show you perspective of person to kite.
And we get to trim it. Actually we hold on for dear life, watch the edge to make sure it is curling slightly and then we have one or two people grinding the winch if it starts to collapse.
Debs trimming the kite with Jenko and DJ grinding and Craig on the helm.Whoops, running out of time. Less than 2 hours to get to boat for race 2 start. It promises to be an awesome sleigh ride with giant waves, etc. I wanted to leave you with something of leg 1 and will have more for you in Capetown.
Crossing the Equator:
We are at Nav station taking pictures of the crossing. I am one on the right in constant motion.
The result of this is the Pollywog to Shellback ceremony with Davy Jones, King Neptune and companions.Ritual of kissing Baby Han’s belly covered in Marmite (YUK)
I actually feel honored that I had the haircut as it has provided me a chance to honor and remember family and friends who have lost their hair due to chemo treatments. You are in my thoughts, mind and heart!
And to close today, I will share a picture of a special sunset.My most memorable moment: At the helm with the sun setting on the west and the moon rising on the east with good breeze! To top it off we were on watch for the entire lunar eclipse that night! That was truly amazing watching the moon disappear, turn orange, stars come out and fill the sky and then the beginning of the return of the bright yellow moon.
So to finish, a whale that visited us.
