May 29 – 31
We hung around the dock in West End waiting for the fishing boats to sort themselves out so Frank could maneuver us out of our narrow stop, which he elegantly did. The seas were glass at first. Then there were the usual inaccurate weather forecasts, wind & waves on the nose and beam, sail up (all three at one point) and sails down, and (dead) flying fish scattered on the deck.
Bonnie had come and gone, and we managed to catch the currents from the Gulf Stream reaching 13 knots; we made great time and arrived a day earlier than we thought, which was actually on the original schedule before the weather delay.
There were three dolphin sightings (right side).
BACK IN THE USA!!!
