Sailing the DR

24 March 2015 | Marina Cap Canya
Greg, sunny calm
The huge whales have surrounded the boat. We are in Whale soup as the local call it. We are being drench with their foul smelling breath as they pass that close to the boat. Oh My Gosh it is amazing.
Well it would have been if it had really happened. Unfortunately they were a long way away and we could only see they spray spouts as they were breathing.
We left Ocean World marina around 8:00. The navy actual came to check us out before the time we requested. Very un Dominican like. The seas were calm so the three boats decided on an executive decision to just sail through the night and get to Marina Cap Cana. Off we went into a slight head wind. The two other boats, "Livin Life" and "Why Knot IV" are both newer and have larger motors. They were able to move at least one knot faster than we were able to. Soon we were left in the sea spray. They reached the marina about 4 hours before we did.
The excitement for the day was when Dylan caught a Cero Mackerel that weighed about 8 pounds. We promptly filed it and that is what we dined on last night. It doe not get much fresher or better than that.
We have a favorable weather window for Tuesday so off we go to Puerto Rico. The Mona Passage awaits us and we are hoping for smooth water. We just need to get customs here so we can leave the county. They are definetly on Dominican time.

Extra:
Greg and Mary had owned Nada Mas, a 23' South Coast, on Lake Dillon in Colorado for 33 years. We chartered in the Caribbean and Calif. numerous times. We were excited to begin our dream. While waiting for a weather window in the Truks and Caicos, Mary died unexpectedly Jan. 6 2015 after a [...]
