We were sorry to say goodbye to two of our American crew and their spaghetti cooking skills today but promised to send them updates and hopefully some great video footage of the turtles! We left Torrevieja shortly after and set sail towards Cartagena. The wind was with us and allowed us to put up all the sails revealing the true capacity of this vessel, which is so well suited to our expedition. Unfortunately, the wind was too strong for turtle surveying. The forecast is calm for tomorrow so we are keeping our fingers (and toes, and arms, and legs) crossed that an early morning sail to a local turtle hotspot will be a success.
