cabo de la vela
cabo de la vela was the last point of ok weather. we approached but decided not to stay. we had the last hours of good weather and knew that if we stayed, we would have to stay for at least a week for the weather to calm down again. so we unfortunately missed this place known for its cool sand dunes and home to the wayuu indigenous people. after our approach, it was crazy windy until we reached sanata marta. we sailed through the tayrona park and could not even see the high peak of the sierra nevada of santa marta because there were so many nasty clouds on top. rather we were sailing very fast with one of the strongest winds we have had on the entire circumnavigation, trying to get to a protected harbor before the worse of the storm.
Esteban is my husband and captain. I am the wife and the captain too!!! We decided to make our common dream come true; so, we fixed the boat, prepared ourselves and, set sail. We hope to share a bit of our voyage with our friends and family through this blog. Enjoy!!!!
