Anchored on the verge of a nervous breakdownMarkus
17-Apr-2008, Bahia de Almodovar, Culebra, Spanish Virgin Islands
Arrived in Culebra today after a very beautiful and enjoyable overnight sail from Anguilla. Our anchorage here in Bahia de Almodovar (any relation to the the Spanish movie director yet to be verified) is stunningly beautiful - a bit of a combination between Tobago Cays (anchored behind a reef), Tyrell Bay/Carriacou (largely undeveloped bay) and Les Saintes (view of St. Thomas lights in the distance) - and all that shared with only one other sailboat! Off to Fajardo on Puerto Rico's east coast tomorrow, update and pictures to follow...
A perfect birthday present...Markus
16-Apr-2008, 18d13m N 063d58m W - En route to Puerto Rico
We're en route from Anguilla to Puerto Rico (or more exactly: to Culebra, an island just east of Puerto Rico) and Papa is enjoying the perfect birthday present - a beautiful night sail, going wing-on-wing down-wind at an easy 5 knots with a poled out genoa and a reefed main... a 3/4 moon lights up the secenery and the wind vane is steering happily again. Next update from Puerto Rico - stay tuned...
Yeek! A long day...Markus
01-Apr-2008, St. Kitts
Weighed anchor at 0600 this morning off Barbuda and dropped it 69 nm and almost 12 hrs later in White House Bay St. Kitts... a long day, reminiscent of the Atlantic crossing - downwind sailing in big and somewhat confused seas... will likely stay put for a few days until seas subside back to "normal" levels, probably next Monday... stay tuned
