Today we have no wind (unusual for here). We’re motoring along pleasantly, heading for the western tip of Cuba. We should be there in about 6 hours, and then we have to make a decision — do we head straight from there to Panama, or take the ‘scenic route’?
We’ve been using the satellite tracker to post our position every 4 to 8 hours, so y’all can see where we are on the BPO website. The three boats ahead have 400+ miles to go to San Blas; we have about 800 to go, assuming we go direct. There are 6 additional boats on their way from Martinique; they have distances to go similar to ours. But they will be going downwind, and probably have more wind than us (certainly more wind than we have now!)
