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.
