on anchor in the bay of CIENFUEGOS/ CUBA
yesterday morning 10am we dropped anchor in the bay of cienfuegos in front of
the marina marlin. the last 90nm we had to motorsail against a strong not
predicted wind. not very good for our engine as we have found out that we have
a crack in one of the cylinderheads. especially bad as there is no spareparts
existing anymore, so now we are hoping to get this fixed here in cuba in a
provisional way and at the same time we have ordered to manufacture 2 new
cilinderheads in cartagena. our travelplans have changed now: we had to cancel
the tour mexico--cuba--mexico and instead we will do this here:


15.june leaving cienfuegos, sailing through jardines de la reina
20.june arriving to santiago de cuba
23.june leaving santiago de cuba for port antonio/jamaica
24.june arriving port antonio/jamaica
28.june leavivng port antonio/jamaica for providencia/colombia
06.july arriving to providencia/colombia

so we are back in the old schedule again from providencia on!
