ADAGIO sails for New Caledonia July 23rd, leaving to starboard the southwest shore of Oahu.
A red-footed booby, comes in for a landing on ADAGIO's bow pulpit.
Albert, a brown morf, red-footed booby, stayed with us the longest. After preening a wing, he would stretch it way out behind him.
As the boat dipped and rocked, Albert preened without concern.
No matter how much ruckus we made in the cockpit, Albert watched unafraid.
After a quick fly around the boat Albert returned to his perch.
Albert easily turned on his perch to face the opposite direction.
We can see on the radar that ADAGIO is in the center of a squall.
The squalls come from the direction of the wind, from upwind.
Leo furls the jib. Notice how he opeates the electric winch with his big toe.
Penelope photographs the cockpit crew from the galley.
Albert departed and a different booby took his place.
George works on the foredeck.
