Just had another great dinner on board the Stahlratte. We are 13 souls on board from beautiful countrys such as Antarktica, Greenland, Auenland, Entenhausen, Tomania and Disneyland...Most of the day we do nothing, eat to much and talk a lot of bullshit. At least most of us do...Life is good!!! (wenn nur nicht dauernd dieser gruen-brockige musikalische Schleim uebers Schiff rinnen wuerde...;)

tonight at 1:30am we arrived under sails to the norther reef of providencia where we dropped anchor and wnt for some snorkeling later in the morning, then we lifted anchor and motores the last 10 miles to providencia and now we are anchored in front of isla catalina in turqoise waters in front of the beach. the rest of the day was swimming and snorkeling and doing immigration. now most of the crew went for dinner on shore and just 3 of us enjoy the calm on the ship to watch a movie.

12:20pm we are 60 nautical miles northeast of providencia (14-14N 80-50W) running under motor since 3am as there is no wind at all. we just stopped for a nice offshore swim around the ship in deep blue waters.....now on course again and hoping for some wind to come back

4:30 in the morning...fresh made croissants are waiting to be eaten for breakfast we are passing over "alice shoal" 16-03N 079-28W with 5 knots speed course providencia. that was a beautifull bright moonlight night;-)

it is 8 in the morning and we are 17-17N 78-45W wich is 60nm southwest from jamaicas westtip. we had to motor 10 hours last night because of no winds but
now we are under full sails again with 6 knots speed so it looks like we are arriving to providencia on saturday weather is nice half cloudy/half sunny and the wind is e-ne 15kn the fishinglines are set with new bate and so we hope for some nice tuna today...;-)

it is 9 in the morning we just had breakfast and we look at montego bay a 2 miles south
of us and the wind calmed down so we just drift very slowly westwards. will wait untill
noon for the wind and if there will be non we start the motor to get around jamaicas west
tip and catch the trade winds again....
