It’s Official: I’m A Deep Sea Fisherman

12Made my managerial debut today by catching my first dorado. When I say ‘catch’ I mean I chose the lure, cast the line, caught the fish, killed it, cleaned it, cooked it and consumed it. Actually when I say ‘cooked it’ that’s not strictly true since I cut it up into small strips, marinated it in lemon juice and ate it raw. Delicious!

My old friend the moon was out tonight. This is the first time I have sailed by moonlight on this trip and I forgot how beautiful it is. With the waves crawling underneath us the moon lit the sea like a garden, with the waves making a rolling staircase dropping down into a garden on the horizon. Watching the stars has been great fun over the last week or so but one can’t beat the moonlight for sheer brilliance and magic.

Video Clip: Middle of the Atlantic

This clip was taken when we had reached exactly half-way across the Atlantic Ocean. The sunset was incredible and I was completely blown away by the idea of being as far away from land as I’d ever been in my life. This is apparent in my bumbling, nervous commentary.
