i2f in Cartegena Colombia

It hasn{t been a milk run that is for sure, unless you consider spilt milk an option . Here is a wee bit of what is going on, and we can be followed ......i2f

John,
Good to hear from you. Glad you're safe. Nobody ever said it was going to be easy.
You look miserable.


Please keep the updates coming.
Steve

Thanks Knot,

I have singlehanded the Baja Bash, so I have that experience. My idea was a beat, or motor to Jamaica, and then we would cover 200 miles a day going to Panama. Lo & behold it was more on the nose! I do not know how rare south west winds are under Jamaica, but we had them for 4 days.

The pic is RTB & I. I am hanging onto the ladder. The anchorage is Shark Cay. I wanted a quick escape.. ........i2f

Thanks for the kind words bl. We should be entering the Pacific in about a week. Melanie, wife, is still posting some videos. She kind of runs the spot tracker thing. I just sail the boat, and do a wee bit of writing........i2f
