I write and send this update while downloading some weather grib files via the sat phone. We are on the far West side of Jamaica, Negril beach, anchored in front of some resorts where one after the other wedding takes place on the beach. Mundinho will show up in many wedding portraits as the sun was right between us and the beach and each and every wedding couple wanted to have that �"sun goes down behind the horizon picture�". Naturally the night was filled with music, very loud music, but we are already used to that here in Jamaica. Today we hope to move on to the Colombian island Providencia, about a three days sail trip in the direction of Panama. We hope we will have some good downwind sailing or at least the winds in the aft quarter. If the weather is good we will leave today, but only after Easter egg hunt on deck. I have heard the Easter bunny has dropped Easter eggs scattered over the deck, so that will be Auke�'s first mission after he wakes up. For now we enjo y the silence, which in Jamaica you really will only find around 06:00 in the morning. All well with boat and crew.
