Our very good mate from Australia, Max, arrived on the 30th and the next day we hoisted the sails and took of.
Going East to West with the wind and the swell, sailing most of the time. The last stretch from Bloody Bay to Montego Bay we had to motor.
Tomorrow there will be a night sail, heading North, to Cuba, about 130 Nm to cover.
Bloody Bay. Suddenly we got the boat cleaned. Nice ... but the dinghy almost sunk. Heavy tropical rain.
Like 20 cm in a couple of hours. Maybe a little touch of 'Alberto" who hit Cuba.
Next day the sun is out again, as always.
This is the last stretch from Bloody Bat to Montego Bay, 28 Nm motoring.
Our good friend Max. Sundowner as always. Works in heavy rain as well.
