Ep. 258 Gale force winds awaits us🌪️

We have a small weather window to escape Cartagena….usually skirted with gale force winds, Chris Parker, the weather guru, has predicted a break of a day and a half so we must leave Friday to the Cayman Islands. It all goes well although we are a bit late in leaving but we are blessed with beautiful conditions and manage to sail up the coast not on track at all. We do this to get some east up our sleeves to make the journey later on an easier one but we hear on the latest forecast that our weather window has shrunk and we must get out of the strong wind otherwise we will get clobbered. We manage to do this but 35 knots squalls are waiting for us at our turning point in the middle of nowhere right next to a hazardous reef.
