Title: position update day 5 to Caribbean

N16:25 W36:07
 
Another good run. Had a 13m yacht get close yesterday with a parasail. The parasail owners rave about how good the sails are.
 
Learnt new lingo, flying "colored sails" means the spinaker or parasail is up. flying "the white sails" means the main and genoa.
 
The poled out Genoa with cutter to the other side and the main all out is working very well. While we have to gybe (which takes about 25 minutes to swap all the poles and safety lines over) we are doing ok. Yesterday was a 210 mile day.
