Day 105, Year 1: Preparing to Leave Curacao
Date: Monday, January 30, 2006
Air Temperature: 84 degrees F
Water Temperature: 80 degrees F
Location: Spanish Waters, Curacao
Our division of labor today was successful. We are checked out and ready to leave. Water maker parts have arrived and are ready to be installed and the necessary supplies are on board. Our weather report indicates decent sailing weather through Friday morning. Then the report is for building winds. It may be possible to move fast enough to beat the worst of it. We’ll just have to take it day by day.
We have met several people going our direction and plan to meet up with them along the way. They will be leaving here over the course of the next week or so and we should see them again in the San Blas and then periodically as we each make our way across the Pacific.
So, we plan to leave Curacao tomorrow morning and will check in each day with our status and any changes in our plans.
