28 April 2012 | On the way to the Caribbean
All night wind at 20 plus knots, strong beam-to seas and confused surface, all leading to uncomfortable conditions and long night. Add to that heavy rain squalls and fog and well, could be better out here. Had to turn slightly more west of my rhumb line to put the waves on my quarter as opposed to my beam - one doesnt want, especially in a catamaran, big breaking seas on the beam. As soon as it calms, I will retake my more northerly line leading to the northern Leeward islands.
