Wind has been over 20 Knots past 24hrs, dropped spinnaker about 1am as we were skewing around something akin to supermario brothers cart racing as we surfed on the big stern quarter swell, boat speed touching 16 knots on occasion. A good days run. We have slowed it all down now to make a daylight arrival tomorrow at the San Blas islands, 60 miles along the coast from Colon the, from all accounts, aptly named city at the Eastern canal entrance.
Blimming city folks at Puerto Rico passed on a cold to Aranya who has suffered mildly while incubating a man flu potency strain which has since targeted me. Asia awakes this morning with sore throat so we are a bunch of tired, snivelling, coughing sailors aboard Moxie.
