Jorge (Argentina, bosun) enjoying Saturday afternoon sunshine from the netting of the heli-deck. No surprise here, I get along with him quite swimmingly.
Hernan (Argentina, 2nd mate) dressed appropriately in his coveralls for his duty as grill master for the evening as Popopaul (India, electrical engineer) proclaims to everyone that if you’re cold it’s because you have a cold heart.
10:40pm sunset over the Okhotsk Sea. I’m still just in awe that I’m here–that I’m on-board the Esperanza, that I’m sailing across these magnificent bodies of water, that this dream has come true–that it’s no longer just a dream.
