After another very slow 24 hours (even reaching a measly 3 knots was a struggle) we finally see land and should arrive in Santa Cruz this afternoon! Woohoo!

It's been a very slow and frustrating crossing with wind directly in our face and currents pushing us constantly away from where we want to go. The crossing from Las Perlas was less than 900NM and took nearly ten days! Crazy stuff!

Now fingers crossed we are allowed to stay in the Galapagos for a few days and the formalities are not too difficult to comply with ... Apparently we may need special fumigation certificates and our hull may need to be inspected for barnacles etc etc.
