Sailing Around The World

Day 2 On Our Way To Columbia

Yesterday was a very fast day on the water till about 4am. We sailed 9 knots for bout 12 hours and I thought that we would be to Columbia in no time but, as we sailed around the most north point of South America the wind died down from 35 mpr to bout 20mpr. The good news is that the wind is climbing back up but the swells are getting pretty big, about 20 feet so far. I have been told that the waves get really big the closer you get to Panama. Anyway funny story, last night as I was at watch a flying fish hit me in the back. It didn’t hurt it was just funny to see all these flying fish, fly into the boat. I must of tossed back 10 of them from the cockpit. The not so funny story was all the waves that kept coming into the cockpit last night. I know its hot here but that water is cold at night when you get soaked.

Current Location: 12deg 17.36min North, 72deg 54,64min West
