We have reached Bermuda and cleared customs. The crew is pleased to stop for a few days before setting off to Horta in the Azores. We did well with food supplies and water. As we neared the eastern end of Bermuda we were greeted by a school of porpoise. They ran alongside the boat and hovered near the bow for a few minutes. We are now staying at Pennows Wharf, St Georges Super Yacht Terminal, St Georges Harbour. The attached picture gives you the view from Evergreen. The crew each submitted the anticipated arrival time and it was placed in a sealed envelope. This Idea came from John DeWyse. The winner would receive a dinner and t-shirt from the others at trips end. We started at a bit after 11:30 on Wednesday and ended our journey at 5:30 pm on Monday. Lisle won within 90 minutes. You can also see the view from aboard for the last few days. Each day 1 or more flying fish landed on the deck. The sizes ranged from 2 to 8 inches in length. They can soar several feet above the waves and change direction in flight.
We tried fishing in 16,000 feet deep water and were greeted with a catch to big to haul in. The 50 pound test line snapped. Perhaps that was for the best. Will add more after a good days rest.

  1. This trip sounds wonderful! It figures, John would get a betting pool together. He probably had money on "Mine That Bird" in the Derby. Check under his bunk for the winning ticket.
