Maximilian - Nearly but not quite....

The only trouble with simbos is you need to plan direction changes well in advance and with just 80nm to finish in Santa Marta we are running a bit low on wind as we have come a little too close in shore! I remember at the weather briefing being told the wind freshens as you run in but obviously I wasn't paying attention as to where exactly ....
Made another record 24hrs yesterday 225nm average 9.4kn with some wonderful sailing in some biggish waves. 25nm or so off the border between Venezuela and Columbia the water changed from deep blue to turquoise, just like that - beautiful.
Life on board has settled into an easy pattern, no real dramas - had to re fix a bathroom door which was trying to throw itself into the aft cabin after a big roll. Battery charger is doing that weird thing again and we still have no SSB - always jobs of course but food and beers are beckoning first.
Fingers crossed the breeze picks up for us ...
