Had another beautiful sailing day yesterday (Thursday)... Parasailor up all afternoon, worked surprisingly well under wind vane self steering. A bit more moisture in the air but still a largely clear night now, no squalls yet. Hoping for Monday morning arrival in Porvenir/Panama. All is well aboard, stay tuned...
Under way againMarkus

Slipped our lines in Port Antonio at 11:30 this morning and are now about 20 nm south of Jamaica's south eastern corner. Beautiful sailing conditions, running downwind in 15kn of wind under a twistle-rigged genoa and clear starry skies. Our friend Bill arrived in Jamaica yesterday and joins us for this leg to Panama - we're very happy to have him aboard! We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay in Jamaica and think Port Antonio must be among the most under-rated cruising destinations in the Caribbean. Very friendly people in a beautiful setting.
