Excellent conditions, 15 knots of wind. We are sailing for just the genoa, and we make 5.5 knots. We shall time our arrival so that it happens before noon Thursday.
Last night was extremely hot. We wore just t-shirts until 5:30 in the morning. I think it is the first time ever.
The moon came up about an hour after midnight, but all night we had stars. Beautiful! She sunrise was behind Aruba, but when the sun comes back in the morning it is always very welcome. Local time is now 09:55, and in Colombia it is 08:55. We did not sleep too well last night. It is always like that the first night. Our scheme with three hours watches was corrupted, but who cares?
