Update from Orca3...

we are at 23*18.7' N 108*20.6'W COG 130T sailing under genoa only 6.7kts we have travelled 153 miles in the last 24 hrs. not bad!!! Seas are about6-8 but are like the seas we get in the Straight of Georgia. short and steep
have had a wave get us on the port side and soak the cockpit - blankets, cushions and us!! looking forward to a marina so we can hose of all the salt!! that wave was a surprise , it broke right beside the boat in the only hole - between the two ss pipes holding up the arch. funny, eh?! if we keep this speed up we will be in Nuevo Vallarta ( just slightly north of Puerto Vallarta) in 35 hrs.

Its been a rocky rolly ride most of the way so far. have managed to catch 2 fish, threw one back too small, not exactly sure what it is- Kyle says its a type of tuna...

we are all not feeling 100% . but the wind/seas have backed of some since yesterday.
our fastest sail was yesterday at 7.5 knts.

love ya all
Dionne

Okay, so I'm a little slow on the uptake...but I do catch on eventually! Now I can do that and STILL answer the trivia questions correctly!! Mom and Dad, before you get all caried away laughing at me, you best make sure that your multi-tasking skills are up to snuff!! Winner, winner Chicken Dinner!!!Hahahahhahaha!
