Panama to Galapagos : Day 5
24th June 2017
Current position : 01 06.12N / 083 06.70 W @2100 Panama local time.
Well not a lot to report today folks.
We tacked onto a port tack to take advantage of the building wind and to get away from the Columbian coast AGAIN! Seas are very lumpy making for not so nice living conditions. A fine drizzle of rain is sweeping through and the wind is increasing to 18- 20kts. The seas are building to 2-3 metres. White caps everywhere.
Our sail configuration is Mainsail with 2 reefs and a quarter jib, Waves are slamming into the hull and we are hunkered down.
Liam just went out into the cockpit to trim the jib and got hit by a flying fish on the leg. Guess he was looking for refuge from the conditions as well.

Maybe tomorrow will be better. One can only hope.
