DIVING FOR SPEED

where is our speed? we seem to go slow! There must be something stopping our

boat. Sea grass, a rope, dirt?

We spend last night discussing and debating on this topic. Although

excitement reached peakes when we hit 4 knts of speed, it faded when our

actual course turned out to be back east.

With the west going tide this early morning we got back on track and

appointed our diver-crew member Vincent. A former marine and eager to take

care of the boat underwater cleaning.

He found .. nothing, all clear.

It’s back to us to find the wind for speed.
