Benao, Panama - 2.-4.1.2013
At Had left Jicaron at night of February 1st and had a bit of a crazy and wild sail, with gusts up to 38 knots and a pretty dark night.
On top of all, the drum of the roller furling of the Genny broke and we had too much sail out.
So we had to run with the wind, directly South, off our course, and Michael managed to roll in the Genoa with the hand.
Wind around Punta Mala all the way up to Panama City or Las Perlas looked pretty bad for the next days, so decided to go only the 25nm up to Benao.
Which turned out as a lovely anchorage for a night.
Now, wind looks better and will set sail and hopefully arrive tomorrow evening still with last daylight somewhere at the Las Perlas – 100nm to go!
