The winds are still fresh and forecast to be so until we arrive in St Lucia--so we're romping along at 7+ knots with a reefed main to starboard on a preventer and poled out reefed genoa to port. At night we just sail under genoa--conservative old geezers as we are.The swell makes it a roly-poly ride but we're in good spirits and looking forward to terra firma in 2 or 3 days.
No rain last night and no bad squalls--the first dry night for some time. Fishing since dawn--but no catch yet. Yesterdays dorado was delicious.
It begins to look likely we'll arrive St Lucia in the dark--Thursday night/Friday morning. Pity--it would have been nice to arrive in daylight--ho hum.
Lovely sunny hot day. Overdressed in swimming trunks.
