Sunshine & Sashimi

Sunshine & Sashimi

Fish on! After some cold and wet nights, the Sea Dragon crew was rewarded with a couple days of back to back sunshine and blue skies. As we make our way to the warmer latitudes, the trade winds are starting to fill in nice and steady. With NE trade winds in full effect, we have changed our point of sail from a close reach, to running beautifully dead down wind, wing on wing! To make the the day even better, late Wednesday evening the crew hooked onto a beautiful bull Mahi Mahi. With a little bit of teamwork, we were able to secure the fish and get it on board. Sashimi time. Great effort by the crew and solid helmsmanship. Once aboard, Captain Anna showed us what was inside the Mahi Mahi’s stomach, which contained a variety of micro plastics that pollute a large portion of our worlds oceans. It makes you ponder the various ways we can be more conscience about environment and promote better methods of sustainability. Not only as a group but as an individuals. The next morning at dawn, the crew hooked up to a really nice Yellowfin Tuna or Ahi, as they’re referred to in Hawaii. Everyone was super stoked. For lunch, Anna and Maggie prepared two beautiful boards of sashimi and some Hawaiian style poke. I think we can all agree that it was a solid 5 stars. By the time you read this, we will be about half way to the Hawaiian islands. Fair winds!
