4) BIGGEST FISH CAUGHT (ON CAMERA )

Tropical Wave

This showed up on our doorstep looking for a handout! Its a Goliath Atlantic Grouper... about 5 feet long. 

This was in the Dry Tortugas, FL 

Blue
Oasis sailed into Garden Key Anchorage after a 9 hour sail from Key
West. We stayed in the Dry Tortugas National Park for 7 days with
sublime, calm weather. Skys clear as a bell, temp in the upper 80's and
wind less than 8 knots the whole week.

Blue Oasis sailed into Garden Key Anchorage after a 9 hour sail from Key West. We stayed in the Dry Tortugas National Park for 7 days with sublime, calm weather. Skys clear as a bell, temp in the upper 80's and wind less than 8 knots the whole week. We snorkeled around the fort at both of the old piers and saw abundant marine life, beautiful coral and perfect water temperatures. We went out to Loggerhead Key and snorkeled at 'Little Africa' and also the Windjammer wreck. The wreck was amazing and well preserved. Fort Jefferson was fun as well, walking the ramparts and being amazed at the engineering done in the 1850's that's still in great shape today. It was our second visit and was even better than the first. We highly recommend a stop there but make sure you have everything you need. No stores, no ice, no cell phone service... your very basic, beautiful landmark Park.

Fort Jefferson appears out of the sea, from miles away. Built in the mid 1800’s of 16 million bricks.

Blue Oasis

Blue Oasis was hold up in Key West at anchor, waiting for the Northeries to
give way to an easy West Trade breeze. The breeze arrived and we set
sail for the Dry Tortugas. Pretty much 65nm West of Key West on the
southern route over the wreck of the Atocha sunk in 1622. 

BLUE OASIS

The cays of the Dry Tortugas can be fierce and unpleasant in foul weather,
and just delightful in calm air. We had the later for 7 days, enjoying
exploring and snorkeling. The snorkel of the Little Africa and the
Windjammer wreck (1907) were both worth a couple of visits. Our fish
encounters were amazing from the giant Atlantic grouper that come to our
boat on 2 evenings, to snorkeling with a large school of 6 foot Tarpen
(we did not dangle anything for them to chomp on).

5) ROSIE 2 - PASSAGE REPORT

Rosie 2 Track

2022/05/25

Our rational for leaving on the 25th was to try and beat the tropical
depression currently forming down around Colombia. If we could make it
far enough east in 3 days time to clear Honduras and Nicaragua then we
could easily make the run into Panama before the depression spread
across the lower Caribbean Sea. Unfortunately we did not anticipate the
maelstrom that was already present along the eastern edge of the
gulfstream as it passed along the Yucatán channel. Weather charts showed
moderate seas and winds with some gusting but nothing like we saw once
we were out in it. 

Current

As we departed Puerto Morales we experienced moderate winds and choppy but
not unruly seas. An hour into the journey Atom lost his breakfast, our
first indicator! As we approached the north side of Cozumel we were
being pulled into a lull created by the lee of the island. We were
forced to tack north to clear the island which took almost 4 hrs for a
tack that should have been less than 2 hrs. Winds changed direction
coming more from the  east than northeast and seas began to
increase from 4 ‘ to better than 6’. Our progress as we attempted to
head south slowed to 2 kts or about 3 mph. This was with sail and engine
at 3/4 throttle. The gulfstream was pushing directly against us at
almost 6mph! Seas began to increase as night came on and swells from the
east grew to 8 and 10’. Winds increased to a steady 25 kts gusting to
35. Through the night we began slamming head into these massive walls of
water. As we tried to find an angle to take them at we began getting
hit with current waves coming at 90 degrees to the easterlies. This
combination made for a most uncomfortable ride throughout the
night. 

We would gain a little speed then get slammed and completely stop the
boat. Rigging would shudder and the entire boat shook as we got hit.
Standing up or moving about was near impossible. We all tried resting
but the constant rolling and banging made it impossible to relax enough
to sleep. None of us have ever been seasick but in this we all had a
feeling of mild nausea. We began to cramp which looking back on it, was
probably dehydration. 

Rosie 2

We continued on this trek for almost 8 hrs hoping that eventually we could
break the grip of the gulfstream and be able to make some heading south
and east. After 24 hrs we looked and we were still only around 40 miles
from where we had started. That’s only making an avg speed of around
1.5 mph!!

Eventually we decided to try and break through running with the current so we
tacked north. We hoped to slice through at a narrow angle making our way
northeast. This was a much smoother ride but still bumpy with
occasional east swells banging into us. We were making 7 to 8 kts but
the big swells kept pushing us back into the middle of the stream and
just would not release us! 

After 30 hrs we were all exhausted and beaten. Cris and I discussed options
but nothing would get us across. Finally I made the decision to turn
back before someone got injured or we did damage to the boat. It was the
smart thing to do even though we all hated to give up.

I’ve sailed for 40 years and this was definitely the worst seas I’ve been
in. Cris made a very profound statement today that really struck home
with me “ cruising is supposed to be about enjoying the journey”. It’s
so true! I think sometimes it’s easy to loose focus on the objective and
become fixated on the result. 

Well no matter where we go from here, it will be about enjoying the journey!!

9) SUN HALO IN CHIAPAS 🇲🇽 MEXICO   

SUN HALO

When you see a halo around the sun, that is an indicator that there is
moisture high in the atmosphere. If the halo is followed by high, thin,
wispy cirrus clouds, then there is a storm system approaching you. It's
typically 24 to 48 hours away - Here comes Hurricane Agatha 

The extraordinary sight is created by tiny ice crystals high in the clouds,
about 5km to 10km above the ground. Each crystal behaves like a prism
and mirror, refracting and reflecting sunlight, splitting the light into
colors and sending shafts of light outwards into a circle.

The Backstory:

I
started sailing at the age of 6 on Lake Geneva, and have since sailed
on many different boats leisurely and professionally. I recently
reoriented my career from IT to yachting. I am a calm, open-minded
problem-solver who easily gets along with people in 3 languages. I am
highly responsible, reliable, flexible, and always eager to learn new
things. I am mechanically handy, very technology-savvy and skilled in IT
and electronics, in particular NMEA networks.
