Detailed Track:

Last evening we realized that it would have been very close to aim at a landfall in Obalda (or at Porto Perme)
before sunset of Monday. So we decided to slow down and aim at a morning Tuesday Landfall at Obaldia
just in time for the opening of customs and immigration. Hopefully the paper-work will go fast and tomorrow
we could leave soon for the begin of the San Blas exploration.

A slow night of rest was welcomed and even more welcome a calm and relaxing day today.
The wind died down to 5-6 kts and we have been slowly motoring to make an 8am landfall.

We have been taking advantage of this relaxing day for some remote work, some reading, some sleeping
some Yatzii games and also a swim in the warm waters of Golfo de Uraba'.
