En route to Panama
Finally after many months of trying Jacob managed to land that elusive Mahi Mahi(dolphin fish). They caught not only one, but a second one, one hour later after crossing the Gulfstream towards the Grand Bahama Bank. Unfortunately, Lisa and Anastasia did not get to enjoy the fish dinners that followed, totally planned they thought. They managed to make good progress and moved towards Colon, Panama at a good pace making only one stop at Great Inagua, as one of our crew members, Bob become ill and had to be flown back to the USA for some follow up treatment. This left a crew of Jacob, Chris and Garry with Lisa and Anastasia waiting impatiently on shore hoping all would be fine and organising the paperwork and meeting the agents to ensure a smooth transit through the Panama Canal.
