" Logbook - Stahlratte "

since 11:05am this morning we are on anchor in front of marina marlin/punta gorda in cienfuegos

sailing to cienfuegos/ CUBA
03:40pm we lifted the anchors and took course to cienfuegos...a great sunset in front andlightenings behind and a very calm sea...tons of shrimps (we got from some cuban fisherman)  ...its a great life;) tomorrow arriving to cienfuegos...

at 11am we dropped anchor in CAYO CUERVO. half an hour later the first fisherman showedup with a bucket full of big lobsters, so dinner is safe for tonight;) the 10kilo mackerel we just caught before coming in here ended up in the freezer for another daymeal...or possibly several meals

we are 3 miles off cabo cruz with no waves and very little wind going around the cape with 2 knots of speed....best weather, easy going...

stahlratte left santiago de cuba this morning at 11am with only crew on board (gabi, ete, guille, joan y lulu) the sea is lika a mirror and we are slowly motoring westwards to cabo cruz where we should find winds for sailing tomorrow morning. we just finished our dinner...bacalao em natas and lomo fino and now watching the beatifull moon wich shines on the sierra maestra where the cuban revolution took its beginning....a bit earlier a couple of spermwhales passed by in 300 meter distance

that was a very short tour from jamaica to santiago de cuba...in 20 hours we arrived here to santiago at 6am and now we are going through the whole official process to become legals in cuba.....salud

7 days jamaica were short for the most of us but absolutely nice YEAH MAN...most of the people were touring around the island and having a good time exploring mountains, waterfalls, rafting and many nice beaches ....good cocktails like the famous MUDSLIDE and music wherever you go and wherever you go YEAH MAN
we met our good friends in port antonio and will come back next year with more time;)

Bevor wir dann wirklich P Antonio ereicht haben, mussten wir dann doch noch mal etwas gegenan fahren. Doch dann zur Belohnung eine wunderschoene Einfahrt, das beste Fotowetter und am Abend dann eine kleine Ankommensparty. Jetzt sind unsere Gaeste in Alle Winde verstreut um Yamaika zu entdecken. Wir pusseln so vor uns hin hier an der Cruserpier in der wunderschoen angelegten Marina. Am Abend nach getaner Arbeit goennen wir uns eins zwei Cocktails und geniessen die Ruhe an Bord. Die Segel sind wieder genaeht, Ete drueckt Fett ohne Ende in unseren Propeller und um die Lenzanlage wird sich auch gekuemmert. Alles geht seinen Gang und ein Inselausflug ist auch noch drin.
In Deutschland kehrt der Fruehling ja jetzt endlich auch ein... Ich wuensche eine sonnige Zeit, Gabi.
