George Town, Grand Cayman

Arrived this morning with a nice windy and wet squall. Two other boats and their people who we know from Rio Dulce arrived today as well so perhaps that will make this unplanned detour a much more pleasant interlude.

Cayman bound, again

Sometimes life throws curves. We are headed back to Cayman. Our trip to Cuba was cut short and did not go as planned.

Cayo Largo del Sur

Arrived to clear in at the Marina Marlin Cayo Largo del Sur at 11:15 this morning - just under 24 hours from George Town, Grand Cayman. The sail was a mixture of beam reaching, motor sailing and beam reaching again in lively beam seas a bouncy but uneventful crossing.

Good bye Cayman

Home Again

We are tied up to a mooring ball in George Town Harbour. Clearance procedures are complete. We had a lovely sail from Cuba yesterday and last night arriving about 7:30. Time for toast, tea and a rest.

Stuart Cay

28 December 2018 | Belize
Today I made lots of mistakes but recovered each without too much time lost. Six months at the dock and playing on the land has made a rusty sailor of me! Panta Rhei also demanded some extra special attention as Allan chased the cooling water problem a bit more. This time it was air in the system caused by switching saltwater intake feeds (maybe) after a plastic bag blocked one intake while in port at Livingston.

So, we got to Punta Gorda a bit later than planned;checked in and then spent a bit more time than we should have. All that to say that we then ended heading straight to windward in 15 knots trades which gusted to 18 knots - lovely sailing weather if we had been going any other direction.

We abandoned our original destination and felt our way into the lee of Stuart Cay, a small mangrove cay which has afforded enough protection to make for a quiet evening. Now to decide where to spend our 39th wedding anniversary.
