dodging squalls

12 April 2012 | off the Haiti DR border

We have fun most of the 15 miles between Ile A Vache and Cabo Rojo under power becasue there were winds less than 5knots on the nose. This, although tedious and loud was fine as the normals winds here are the Tradewinds which blow at 20 knots out of the east.... on our nose.

most of the nights watch was for little squalls which were popping up around us. we successfully dodged most of them. the worry is not the rain but the lightning or increased winds. We saw no lightning last night and in the few squalls we were forced through, only wind as high as 15 knots... so all is well and we will be in Cabo Rojo in a couple hours...
