5 days jamaica....thats not much but intense;) we had no time to say goodbye
today as there was so many things to do before departure.....the rail for the
mainsail on the mainmast had to be repaired and we were a bit slow with all
after the last night jamaican-rum-testing. we had considered to stay a day
more is port antonio but the weatherforecast was too good not to saik as for
the next days the wind should be like zero between jamaica and cuba.
we left under sails this "one of the most beatifull harbours in the caribbean"
and big waves and a strong breeze awuited us outside the harbour......see you

after sunset yesterday evening the wind calmed down to zero and so we fired up
the engine and during the nicght we passed the western tip of jamaica and now we
are 60 nautical miles east of port antonio....will be arriving tonight around

sailing to JAMAICA (4th day sailing)
a 100 and something miles left to west-tip of jamaica.....everything calmed
down...wind and waves, so the sailing now is "slow n easy"
yesterday caught a big dorade (mahi mahi) and a barracuda....the first one ended
up in the oven with potatoes tomatoes and white wine and the other one was
converted into the best ceviche ever;)
all canvas is set and everybody is allright!

sailing to JAMAICA (3rd day sailing)
yesterday evening the mainsail got a scratch so we had to take it down and
repair by hand stitching and after 2 and a half hours we could set it again and
go on sailing. the winds remain strong but finally we are able to head almost
directly to the west-tip of jamaica. it is sunny and warm and except masa our
japanese man no more seasicknes on board. now we are going to replace the old
(broken) flyer for a new sail to get more speed.....we are sailing with 5 knots
now and we are half way between cartagena and jamaica.

sailing to JAMAICA (2nd day sailing)
10:30am beakfast is over and the strong winds took down our flyer sail....sheet
broke and the sail suffered a bit. as soon as weather is becoming calmer we put
a sparesail on. now we are sailing 6-7 knots under main, stay, jib and
outerjib. speed record this morning was 9 knots and we have sailed over 100
nautical miles since we left cartagena port.

sailing to JAMAICA (1st day sailing)
11:30am anchor up and left harbour of cartagena with 14 souls on board + 5
motorcycles. the sea is a bit rough and the wind too northerly to head to
jamaica directly so our course is a bit more northwesterly.....hopefully that
will change in the next hours:)
crew and guests are from germany, switzerland, spain, argentina, colombia,
finland , france and japan

we are in cartagena preparing our long westcaribbean round-tour....a
couple of new sails a new cooking-stove and a lot of maintenance here
