Sailing fast as always.Broad reach 7knt headingfor Panama.Swell is 3m and rolling us a litttle.Two reefs;the first reef line wore through overnight.Sunny and warm.
Fantastic green flash last night,always better at sea and lasted several seconds.Then the Southern Cross for the first time this trip.
So far seem to be keeping off Venezuela whose rees claim mainly yachts.
Crew in fine sporits and bigitalian on the stove.More tomorrrow.
