Hello from the Dominican Republic

24 March 2014 | Samana, Dominica Republic
We left Boqueron, Puerto Rico at 08:00 on Saturday and arrived here about 09:30 on Sunday. We started out with a tail wind and sailed wing on wing for four hours. The wind died and we had to motor the rest of the trip. During the day we saw a school of fish boiling on the water and diverted with our fishing line out back, but did not get lucky. During the largely uneventful night Hunter heard a crack like noise and a flying fish landed in the boat and fell out of an open drain in the cockpit floor. I had no such drama on my watch. It was a calm night with a gibbous moon. We entered Samana Bay at sunrise with two cruise ships bound for the town of Samana. Here is a photo of Hunter rigging the whisker pole so we could run wing on wing.

We are spending a night in Marina Puerto Bahia, which offers luxury at a reasonable price. It is a hotel and condo complex with a marina. There are three infinity pools, several restaurants and bars other amenities that we are not likely to use. We did enjoy a swim in a pool yesterday afternoon and retired early.

Friends on a similar schedule and destination are here in the marina and we are all planning to go to the town of Samana today to pick up fresh food for a few days at anchor in Los Haities National Park. More about friends and parks in the next post.
