Detailed Track:

We are about 60 NM North-East from Santa Marta, approaching the Barranquilla "high wind" zone.
So far the wind is far from reaching the possible  Gale conditions predicted and is blowing around 20-23 kts.
It seams that the Peninsula de Guajira" on our East is contributing to lower wave height that we have seen 24 hours before with about the same wind speed.
