Today the wind finally calmed down, and the seas, too, as a result. So we weighed anchor this morning and are currently on a cruiser’s dream sail – 4.5 hours downwind at about 4.0 knots (read mph), with an average of 9 knots of wind, on the spinnaker – there’s nothing so relaxing!
We’ve just anchored off Rat Cay – right opposite the little beach where we once had a dinghy escape – narrowly losing the “family car”. We won’t do that again J.
Now for a swim before dinner off the back of the boat in the crystalline turquoise water. I just hope the snow’s gone in Toronto when we get back in 10 days – it’ll be hard to adjust! (I know, no sympathy forthcoming …)
