Leaving San Juan after two weeks. While here we had a wonderful time enjoying the city and Puerto Rico's sights (Old San Juan, Arecibo Observatory, Camuy Caves, Ponce Museum of Art, El Yunque National Forest). We also made friends with Nur and Baha, who were our neighbors in the marina for the last week.
Next stop is Isla da Mona, and then on to Santiago de Cuba. Depending on the grib weahter forecast we will either circle Hispaniola to the south or north, but probably north. In case something comes up we can stop over in the Dominican Republic.
The weather forecast is very light winds with occasional showers. So we surely won't set up a new speed record and will probably stay well below the normal average of 150nm per day.
