Good Morning,
Last night was fairly uncomfortable with waves hitting the side of the boat and quite a few breaking over the deck.  We gybed early this morning and that has helped quite a bit.  The waves are still pretty big so we can't open the hatch in the salon so it gets hot below.  The boat is moving along really well with a double reefed main and reefed jib.

Last night Becca made some pasta salad that was GREAT!  It had elbow noodles, black olives, tomatoes, chunks of chicken, vinegar and parmesan cheese.

I see sandwiches in our future today though, it's pretty boisterous today.

Today is EmilyAnne's 17th birthday!  We brought stuff to make a cake but... she might have to wait...

We should be arriving in Panama Sunday morning, we are pretty excited!

Aline - EmilyAnne says the answer is: "The horses name is Friday..."

  1. If you guys want a reaaly cool and unique experience while your there , consider spending a night at the Rio Chagres. It's 6 miles from the entrance to the Canal basin and is a nice break. You can anchor in nice cleanish fresh water and listen to the howler monkeys and parrotts but still hear the horns of ships transiting the canal.the newest guide book has good coordinates for getting in and we never saw less than 9 feet. Happy Birthday Em!

  2. Happy Birthday Emily-Anne! Have a great day!
