Day 21

127 nm made good, all sailing. 105 miles to go.

The last two tomatoes went bad yesterday. They probably should have lasted longer but they were in a bowl that was also used to hold coffee cups (to keep them from flying all over the place, the cups and the tomatoes). The theory is that the cups damaged the tomatoes and hastened their rot.

Yesterday afternoon Linda and I were both on deck and saw a shark swim by about 20 feet from NAKIA. We estimate it was about 5 feet in length. We didn't have any fishing gear out at the moment so there was no chance of catching it to make a positive identification.

We've had to slow down a little, target speed is 5.0 knots, to get in right at sunrise tomorrow morning. We'll see.
