Not much happening here. We have a bit more breeze and are sailing under main and genoa, still going West, still quite slowly, still comfortable. The other rally boats are to the South of us, on a more direct route but we have chosen to stay North in order to keep away from the coast and, hopefully, to pass to the North of the notoriously rough conditions that prevail off the Colombian coast near Medallin and Cartegena. However the current forecast is for benign conditions ahead so we may decide to start cutting the corner a bit, but not just yet.
Bungles and Lulu doing a great job sailing the boat, with Lulu handling the foredeck work when hoisting/dropping the spinnaker. Well done Lulu! Crew all well and in good spirits. No fish to report, although we’ve had a couple of nibbles on the line.
