01 Apr Day 4 – Happy Easter & April Fools Day
It feels like we are getting into a routine. We had another day of light winds, sunshine, and a full moon rise, I’m a happy girl! Weather is forecasting a couple more days of light winds. No easter egg hunt aboard Maia.
Dick pulled out the Honda generator early and charged the batteries. We went over safety procedures today and realized we need to get clearer on our COB (crew overboard) procedures. We also talked about the liferaft, fire and fire extinguishers, EPIRB and a few other things.
Tonight was our night to host the Banderas Bay Pacific Puddle Jump Radio net, we had lots of checkins! Thank goodness Sea Casa was there to relay for us. We could only hear a few boats clearly, which has seems to be the situation most evenings. It is great to be able to find out where others are and really exciting when we hear when one of the fleet has become Shellbacks! (They have crossed the equator and are now in the Southern Hemisphere.)
How far did we go? April 1 – 78 miles
