ARC 2018 – Day 5 – ‘Quokka’

We are enjoying Day 5 of our race from Gran Canaria to Saint Lucia aboard Quokka 8.

We are crew of different nationalities representing Great Britain, Poland, Finland, Germany and the Netherlands, this really gives an extra flavour to this race and makes it really fun!

Our skipper Gareth has been of great guidance during our cruise so far, especially appreciated by less experienced sailors (read me).

During the night watches we have enjoyed the full moon and seen amazing shooting stars in the night sky. The highlight of the trip has been observing the numerous dolphins that have followed Quokka 8, especially seeing dolphins swimming alongside your boat at night time is quite an experience that I will never forget.

Yesterday, we caught a Mahi Mahi and were able to cook it aboard the boat, that was the most fresh fish that I ever eaten.

You would think this is a long journey, yes it is, but time is really flying while racing in the Atlantic Ocean.
