We made the passage between Isla Providentia and the Grand Cayman, 383 miles in 2-1/2 days. That's averaging 6.35 knots per hour. With favorable currents, our speed over the ground was often 7.0-8.0 knots! We sailed the final 36 hours!! On our final day of sailing, we were far enough north of any previous piracy locations, so that we turned our AIS system back on. We quickly learned that we were going to be crossing a major traffic zone. At one time, we had 6 contacts within a 25 mile radius. Some were on collision courses with Julia Max. So we took evasive action until it was safe to continue on. As we approached our final destination, we observed 3 cruise ships leaving Georgetown, and we heard another cruise ship arrives tomorrow. Today is a holiday in the Caymans: Queen Elizabeth's Birthday. As one of the remaining British Colonies, I was even surprised the Port was open for business.
