Arrived in Venezuela

We arrived in the Venezuelan offshore islands of Los Testigos on August 2nd after a memorable 106 miles sail from Carriacou in Grenada. We left at the end of the afternoon, just before sunset, to arrive during daylight in these poorly charted islands. This was our first long sail with the wind from behind and it was delightful. After ten months of beating upwind it was a real treat to just fly smoothly west along with the wind.
