Voyage: Isla Mujeres, Mexico to Pensacola, December 2016


BIG FISH ON!  This was definitely Libra’s most exciting voyage for fishermen as we had Big Dave aboard who runs a deep-sea fishing charter out of Orange Beach, Alabama and has a killer instinct on how to hook the big ones and keep them on the line.  The Libra crew caught blackfin tuna, mahi mahi, mackeral and another tuna.  One was so big we had to cut him off the line.  Big Dave guessed around 100 pounds!  What a monster!

It was a very sporty sail across the Gulf departing the colorful Mexican island of Isla Mujeres December 5, 2016 in the morning hours and lighting Libra’s rockets the minute she got out into the Gulf to make a record run across the Gulf, sailing over 600 nautical miles in under three days.  The crew aboard included some return voyagers who found the the trip down from Pensacola to Isla Mujeres on Libra to be so much fun they wanted to hitch a ride back across the Gulf, too.  Thanks to crew members Joe and Kim for hopping back aboard.  It was a fast, windy run, one none of the crew are sure to soon forget.  In the back of their minds, they’ll hear the wind, waves and Big Dave shouting “Fish On!”  Want to reel Libra’s next catch in?  Join us at www.saillibra.com/join-a-sail/.
