FLAMENCO BEACH CULEBRA
20th MAY
Our last day in Culebra decided to walk across to see Flamenco Bay. A pleasant walk but a long one for Vossie. Long white beach with surrounding reefs. Very popular beach even though it wasn't the weekend. Lots of kiosks with food and drink. Also the beach of choice where people get married. There was also a camping site for tents only, no vehicles allowed.
The boys went off to locate the old abandoned tanks left behind by the US army and Debbie and I sat on the beach resting the legs and enjoying our beers.
Ended up catching a bus back to the dinghy which was a 10 minute ride and were dropped off in front of bar of choice, Bateys, where we had another beer before heading back to our boats to ready ourselves for departure to Vieques the following day.
21st May
We left Ensenada Honda at 11.00 am and snagged a mooring buoy when picking up the anchor. Vossie injured his hand during this exercise, cutting his finger,....not a good start to the day. The first part of the trip we had a good sail and things looked good but then we lost the wind and had to motor sail. Then we lost revs and another problem revealed itself, as I said bad start to the day. The gearbox was losing oil, so Vossie had to keep on topping with oil to get us to our destination.
Eventually we arrived in Sunbay, Vieques at 5.45pm. I steered us onto the mooring buoy and Vossie picked up and we were safe for the night. I'm getting better at this mooring exercise.
