The sail was absolutely fantastic and we couldn't have asked for a better one before our crossing. Blue skies, 10-20 knots of wind in the exact direction we wanted it. At nights the sky was littered with stars and during the day you could bask in the sun.
We had a very interesting experience with a bird on the boat. I was in my room and had just woken up from a nap when I hear mom say with her face in my window, "ok, don't be afraid and don't move but there is a bird inside the boat." I say ok and lay back down and listen to the very interesting dialogue...
Mom: ok you boys have to go get that bird
Alex: yes. Dad come on
Dad: ok you go at it from that side and I'll go at it from this side.
Dad: The birds gone
Mom: OMG ITS ON MY HEAD!!!
The bird finally flew away and we all we were left with the image in our head of mom with a bird flying around her head...I'm still laughing. The salty crew has got addicted to 4 tv show. Are you ready to hear the names of the best tv shows in the world?
