We’ve cleared into the Dominican Republic
19 March 2010 | Luperon, The Dominican Republic
It is truly beautiful! After months of trepidation we have found Luperon, Dominican Republic absolutely awesome. We arrived yesterday. It was cloudy and muggy but the mountainous hillside was lush with vegetation and was a welcomed sight after our 330 miles from Rum Cay. It took two nights and three days to get here and we sailed some of it but mostly motor sailed close hulled in fairly flat conditions.
The Bahamas were turquoise and mostly clear. The ocean crossing was a sapphire blue. And the waters here are green-brown in colour but not as green as some of the waterways that we encountered along the ICW.
