On February 2nd, three of us set sail from Tenerife in the Canary Islands, Spain to Martinique in the Caribbean. It took a few days to get used to life at sea. Constant motion, cold weather (long underwear and fowlies), 15ft seas, 20-30 knot winds, night-watch from midnight to 4am, and precooked/simple meals. By day 5, we were dialed in. Highlights include learning to sail, fresh dorado (mahi mahi), dolphin & whale sightings, use of solar & windpower, daily fruit rations, swimming in 20,000 feet of water, no phone/internet, and trawling for plastic pollution. After 2,800 nautical miles, reaching land was bittersweet.
