Cruising along in the Caribbean sea. We are sailing full and by with all sails up and she is running up and down the waves smoothly.
The wind goes stronger and lower as the fair-weather cumulus clouds pass. It veered in our favor this morning after sunrise and at the moment we can head to the border between Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
The last part will be made of tacking our way up the south coast of Hipaniola. Life on board continues at the same paste with a bit more heeling and a bit less rolling. A few more days of this should bring us in sight of land again.
