Just off Punto Galinas,that is the tip of Colombia.Surfing in 4m swell generated by the 2knt current.The waves Curl with white crests into the stern of the boat.Only one has washed the cockpit but to boards are across the companion way.Even so Eric who has been suffering terribly from seasickness and unable to stand watches was to be seen sitting on the stern deck cutting his toenails.
We now set a direct course for Colon,Panama which should take us out of the swell in a few hours.
