The Race: 4th day
Eight foot seas ... long, rolling swells approximately 200' apart! The photo on the left shows Bubba and Pat on the stern as we crest a wave. The right photo was taken a few seconds later as we drop into the trough.
At 1:50 P.M., the crew of the Full Moon unanimously agrees to fire up the engine and steam towards Isla Mujeres.
After 72 hours of beating to weather, we have only made it 1/3 of the way. We are at 27° 13.9' North, 87° 30.0' West. At this rate, we would not arrive in Isla Mujeres until next Friday.
I couldn't get a photo because we all placed our hands on the throttle and simultaneously engaged the propeller.

Pat and Shaun go forward to get a closer view.
Traditionally, sighting dolphins has always been considered to bring good luck.
Pat could almost touch them.
I took a lot of photos of the dolphins. Click on the camera to see more!.
