The highlight of the trip so far has been today, where we were joined for over an hour and a half by a whale. We are not sure what kind, but we first noticed him while adjusting our sail trim, and I pointed to the water and said “what the hell is that?”. The gray form swam along side us, just under the surface of the water, and then swam under our boat. We guessed a whale, because it looked too big for a dolphin.
After we got our sail trim done, the whale kept making appearances. We could watch him in the wave behind us, almost like he was surfing along. Sometimes he would come up to our wake, right behind the transom, and surface, jaw first. Most of the time, he would glide around and under us, and then we would spot him again in the waves behind us, like he was making big circles around us! Sometimes, he would even go belly up, and show off his white underside. It was very entertaining, and David got some great photos and videos to share when we get back to land!
