Big Winds Arrive

We turned to head south to the San Blas Islands about 11:15 on Saturday night.  Soon there after the winds and waves picked up.  The Columbian coast did not disappoint we were in the strong winds as expected and as forecast.  The winds were up to 28 knots through the early evening and night last night.  We had furled up the genoa and had the stay sail out so we were moving along at a comfortable 5 to 6 knots of speed.

We have slowed down as it is recommended you go through the coral reef to enter Porvenir in the San Blas Islands between 8 AM and noon.  We expect to be there prior to 8 AM so we may have to heave to and wait to enter the reef.
