24 hours out of aruba
Fri 12 Dec 2008 13:37
And to start with did you spot my deliberate error yesterday? North should have read 12:31.000N which should be Aruba!
Anyway left at 8.30 am after trying to sort out immigration, but the man just dissappeared .. so I did as well! Wind shifted a bit and dropped to good tacking breeze... just one snag dead beat uop the side of the island. Once clear not quite enough wind so just a steady pace.
this position is 8.30 am local time (12.30gmt) ie 24 hours in... more or less as expected. So far just one long tack and unless the wind changes direction will be the same all the way to the lee of Puerto Rico!
