Reef

Yesterday as we were heading up the west coast of Huahine we noticed a run of breakers across our path. They were not on our charts (updated 4 months ago.) We called the boats we were transiting with and gave them a heads up. We did wonder if we were making a big deal out of nothing. Apparently not. Today we met another boat that communicated that another cruiser had run up on the UNCHARTED reef. Not good.Fair winds and following seas 🙂

After 23+ days of sailing we are finally west of LA (and 2510 nn south.) Just as how many new Caribbean sailors are surprised to find the Islands well East of the U.S. mainland we did not appreciate how far east is the exit from the Panama Canal. it is actually raining rather than the normal light drizzle. This is the first time in months that I have put on foulies. They are quite warm in this climate. Unlike the Atlantic and Caribbean so far the rain has not been accompaned by strong winds. The waves do increase giving a bumpy ride. Right now I am dealing with the wind shifts rain always brings. Fair winds and following seas 🙂 Please note your reply is limited to 160 Latin characters or approximately 135 for non-Latin characters. Sent via Inmarsat. The mobile satellite company
