Jamaica Mon!

16 March 2019 | Port Antonio, Jamaica
George Stonecliffe
The wind was E10-15, light for traveling downwind with seas from the SE pushing the boat into a constant yaw and roll. Not the best conditions from the Dominican Republic to Jamaica. But we are here, Mon! In Jamaica, Mon! And only one final leg to go from Jamaica to Panama. But first we will enjoy about six days in Jamaica. The engine repairs in Boca Chica, DR worked great as we motor-sailed parts of the way. I went up the mizzen mast to retrieve the remainder of the radar bracket, and tidy up the wire for the trip to Panama. Today, Saturday, after a good nights sleep, we will organize the boat, always needed after a passage. We will go to the Saturday Market in Port Antonio for fresh fruit and vegetables. We are arranging a trip on Monday to a coffee plantation in the Blue Mountains. While out we may drive over to Kingston, and see the Bob Marley Museum! The last time I was in Jamaica, it was with the US Navy in 1972 when we made Montego Bay on the northwest shore.
