A provender

Every day, it seems, we come across a flying fish lying somewhere on deck. Peregrinus has 1.5 meters of freeboard, i.e., the height between waterline and deck. It is remarkable how high these little fish leap out of the water in relation to their modest size of about 20 cm.

As it relates to provender, a reader suggested "flying fish tartare," but in truth, we'd be hard pressed to even let the Alférez have a bite. But who knows. Maybe if we run into dire straits with regard to food stores.

We are now 380 NM east of the Carolina-Virginia border, 1580 NM north of Valencia, 2921 NM west of Cádiz, and 470 NM south of Schoodic Island.
