February, 2014 - PASSAGE TO CUBA

We set out just ahead of what was expected to be a mild "Norther".  We had good south winds to start, a bit of excitement as the front passed, then perfect NW winds, clocking slowly to the N, then dieing.  A fast passage for us at just over 6 kts/hr.  Arrived almost a 1/2 day early and had to wait the night outside the entrance to Cayo Largo, entering at first light.

Friends Mike & Fern join us from Canada for this part of our journey.

Sandra is broken up over leaving Mexico.

Tthe trip starts out sunny and warm.
