Arrived in Colombia

We arrived in Colombia at 4 am on December 7, 2009 after an overnight sailing of 148nm from Aruba. With the current helping we set a new speed record on Chocobo with an average speed of 7.5 knots hence the reason we arrived at Cabo de la vela during the night. If you wonder what’s with the yellow flag, this is the flag representing the letter Q in the maritime flag alphabet. The Q flag represents the quarantine and must be hosted when entering a country until the customs and immigrations are cleared.
