Another one breaks the rust

After 5 days stuck on land, due to the storm that fell on us last week, the whole of the crew was very happy to put on our gloves and head back into the bay.

The panorama has changed a lot over the past days, though. A white coat has now almost entirely recovered the bay and shall not be taken out over the next months. The sea was very bumpy as well, still fed on the large remaining underwaves born from the previous days.

The one thing that hasn't changed? The whales!!! No less than 8 humpback whales were out. Two groups of 3 and 4, and a loner. Even though very hard to approach at first, partially due to the rough sailing we had, we still got very nice up-close moments with them.

Tomorrow, the wind should finally turn South. Which should bring very cold temperature, but cool down the waves as well. So WE will go out and, hopefully, find all our gigantic friends again!



The magnificient winter colors in the bay have offered us a fantastic ballet, featured with our friends the humpback whales 









But also few up-close apparitions...
