We put up the genoa sail when the winds started up again. Garrett was on the spritzer, and Rick had hold of the sheets. When we are on deck, it is essential that you are tethered to the boat with a life line. As the genoa went up, it filled with such force that it pulled Rick right off the ground, ripping his lifeline off. Luckily he was holding onto the halyards, and didn't go over.
We have seen tons of flying fish today, although we have not been able to catch anything else!
We are all very anxious and excited to step on land.
