Sailing with Dummies (California to
Texas Florida, Day 36)
Tuesday, July 14, 2009
Some rain showers early this morning cooled things off. I actually put a towel over my legs to keep warm while I was reading.
We made good time from Grand Cayman overnight but a head current started increasing this morning, reaching more than two knots in the afternoon. It feels better to be going 8.5 knots than 6.5 knots.
The cruise ship business seems to be in good order. In addition to the numerous cargo ships we have passed, or been passed by, we have seen several cruise ships.
Fishing conditions south of Cuba are sad. No fish today. After we round the tip of Cuba tonight we’ll enter the Gulf Stream. That should change our luck!
