We are very pleased to be in a Marina. The wind has been blowing at gale force and the windspeed on the adjacent yacht read 54 knots earlier.
We have removed most stuff of the deck and have doubled up our mooring lines.
Its forcast to blow like this for a few days so this is home for a while.
Actualy this suits us fine. It will give us a few days to do the mending and boat jobs that need attention.
The current list of stuff to do before sailing off again includes.... going up the mast to replace or mend the masthead tri, which broke on passage. Source new bulb for port running light which also broke on passage. Remove genoa mend the rip or put on another sail. Source propane gas bottles as our butane bottles are probably not refiilable from here onwards. Check whether we can now get some boat insurance at a sensible price. Source a new pump for the heads as its completely broke. Replace connection for ssb antenae to backstay.Tighten the lower stays as they seem to have become loose.
We may not get everything done as this is really not the place to buy anything as their is not even a chandlers
We are just east of Cartegena the capital and we hope we can take a trip for a couple of days once we have sorted the official paperwork here; we have hired an agent to do this for us . ... well there is no way we could do it ourselves.
We seem to be eating out a lot. Its not too expensive and generaly the food is good.
There are many street stalls selling fruit smoothies; you choose the fruit and they make it for you lovely cool and refreshing....despite the wind it is very hot and in true English stylee we always make sure that we are out in the midday sun.
