Time to leave Caribbean and sail to Colombia. This time it is 815NM and will take approximately five days. We have put on seasick plaster to make sure we don’t get seasick. Getting out in the start line we see Infinity laying in the bay and waving to us. They crossed the Atlantic with us. Mary1 came out to cheer on us and the other boats.
The start signal went of and we was not near the starting line……we crossed the starting line last. We couldn’t have our wing by wing from start, there was little wind for our mainsail so we didn’t go that fast in the beginning.
Finally we turned and took a new course. The wing by wing sail setting with our genoas was hoisted. Slowly we are getting closer to the fleet and after a few hours we are not last anymore
We are enjoying our sailing and taking watch turns. Edgar is doing the first night ours and I take over around 02.00 until morning around 6-7. This goes on for the hole sailing and during daytime we read,knits, eats or sleeps. Some nights we have rains and we can see them coming on the radar. Bit by bit we continue to get more boats behind us. It seams like the nights gives us better winds. Boats comes and goes on the Ais. I have so lovely sun sets and sunrises during my watch and it is very hard to choose photos so here comes many. The moon is shining on us every night so it is not totally dark which makes the watch much easier.
Getting closer and we see land and we are getting in as the fifth boat in Santa Marta. So happy and pleased with our sailing. Now it will be nice to sleep a full night in our bed. This is the longest we have sail by our self.
