Easter Sunday was our first day in the Caribbean. Seas were lumpy. The wind was light, and from the North, so we motor-sailed on our track to Isla Providentia (an island of Columbia off of Honduras). At dusk we encountered our first squall. We saw it coming. So we battened down all portals and hatches. Reduced sail. Cleared the cockpit of cushions and sunshades. Waiting for the gust of wind, it never came. Just three minutes of hard rain, washing down the boat. Always a welcome event!
