SEA April 22: Yucatan Straits

It is becoming painfully clear how little time we have left on the boat. Dave discusses turnaround, Andrew prepares us for anchor, our latitude is getting to be a larger number . We are rounding Cuba, our CPA was 6nm. I saw the lighthouse flashing when I went up at 2130. We are making the tum now, 045, full and by.

Since our departure from Grand Cayman we've been sailing downwind in this Force 5, now we'll be pounding the waves close-hauled . We'll be beating -- beating our way home. This turn marks it -- our journey is ending. I don't think I'll sleep the rest of the time, there's too much savoring to do.
