Transatlantic with sailing yacht Doertita 2013

This sketch I made on the 2nd December at latitude 15 degree 34`North and 40 degree 5 `West in the middle of the Atlantic. We were three guys and it took us 22 days from the Canary Islands to Barbados in the Caribbean. We saw only two other sailing ships, only water, flying fish, clouds and dolphins.
The ship was rolling all the time, so I started with soft pencil and then went under deck to the fine work while trying to hold everything. It was never more difficult to draw for me.
The boat is a forty feet yacht and she carried us safely to Barbados.
Pencil, ink and water color on paper.
