Fat Tuesday

Tuesday February 25

We sailed through the night and are now somewhere off the coast of northern Nicaragua. We are still traveling with our buddy boat Saltair3 and a third Panama Posse boat Ankyrios is a few miles behind us.

Dan dropped two fishing lines out this morning, caught a big one that got away and took most of the 300 meters of new line with it.

He did manage to catch a 22” Tuna, it’s all filleted and chillin in the fridge.

First time flying the spinnaker in the Pacific Ocean. Cruising at 6 knots with 9.2 knots apparent wind.

Craziest sight, a seagull standing a sea turtles back as it swam by. Too far for a photo unfortunately. In the late afternoon there were at least two dozen dolphins of all sizes swimming around our bow, several jumping in the air with hang time.

I made tuna burgers from one filet, they were pretty good! 1 filet of tuna 1/2 cup bread crumbs 1 egg 1 tbs dried parsley salt and pepper I cut the fish into small pieces to make sure there were no bones, tuna have some side bones in addition to the spine. Place all ingredients in a blender, pulse till thoroughly blended. Made two patties from this mixture, sautéed in pan with a little bit of oil. Cook until internal temp is 145F.

Day is done, gone the sun, and you guessed it, the Milky Way and a sky full of stars! Tonight we are still cruising the coast of Nicaragua.
