Sapphire II of London - Day 1 to the Galapagos


Having successfully crossed the Panama Canal we spent a couple of days in Panama City end enjoyed the most amazing food tour, taking us deep into parts of Panama City which were well off the tourist trail. We then spent 2 nights at Las Perlas Islands - calm and peaceful with beautiful beaches. Emily and Helen went exploring and found golf carts to drive around the whole island (all 1.4 miles of it) and find a stunning deserted beach.

Yesterday we set off to the Galapagos - approximately 900 miles. We had a beautiful start, managed to get our asymmetric up and down with no problems and had a kind calm sea until about 8 pm when both the wind and the sea decided to pick up. We had a bumpy night -but now back to lighter winds and a peaceful sea.
