We set sail from Puerto Rico expecting a “sporty” sail. What started as a mundane sail ended with winds to 40 knots, a fresh gale, and steep waves. The coast of Columbia is renowned for it’s sea conditions. Some say it’s the entire Atlantic piling up in this corner of the Caribbean. Others say it’s the current. On the fifth day we took down all of our sails in order to slow down our surfs down these waves. This sail will go down as one of our most memorable rides.

We’re here in Cartagena now and loving it. It has everything you could ever want from an old world city. A great atmosphere and cheap food. It’d be accurate to say we’re fully in Cartagena’s clutches!

      Fantastic Jose. With the D400 wind generator we are almost always topped up. Thank you so much for all your help.

      Just today we installed a new battery charger. Went with the Victron Energy charger (50 amp Phoenix model).
