“Tonton Benoit, your breakfast is ready!” Said Paul to wake me up. Every morning I wake up at least two hours before swimming to give me enough time to eat, check my emails and write.
Maks and Maria were on the dinghy. Last night when we decided on the watches and duties for today, Maks asked Maria to be with him on the dinghy duty. It was important for her to get back on the horse after the propeller incident to regain her confidence as soon as possible.
Yesterday before the swim, we found out that my tracker wasn’t powering on. I had to use Seeker’s. Today, I would have to do the same. This is why there is only one tracker showing on our online tracker page, and it shows Seeker moving slow and only during the day because it is tracking my progress. The manufacturer has been contacted and the issue is being worked on. Everything should be back to normal in about a week. Some reprogramming has to take place.
In about a couple of days,, I should reach my 1,000 nautical miles of swimming. We won’t be at 1,000 nm from the Japanese coasts because I followed the Kuroshio current which is not running in a straight line. We should be at 1,000 nm from the Japanese coasts in another 15 days, weather permitting.
Today was just a normal swim day, there is any normality in what I am doing. After almost 9 hours of swim I was happy to get back to our mother ship and rest.
