Newport to Cartegena Day 5 - 3

340 Miles NE of Bahamas 27 15.5N 69 44.1W

Do-do-do-do do-do -- to the tune of "Sleigh Ride"

Outside the fish are flying and crew are calling Whoo-hoo
Come on lets get to gether for a sleigh ride together with you.
Giddy up, Giddy up, Giddy up, Giddy Up lets Go.......

Early evening conditions are a blast. We are holding a steady 9+ kts, with peaks above 11kts as we surf down the waves. It isn't the most comfortable motion, but it isn't too bad and the miles are really ticking off. We are currently looking at making landfall in Mayaguana (or your iguanna, if your not careful) friday morning as we most likely won't get to Great Inagua before dark if we were to continue on. As I write this we just had a 12" long flying fish land on the side deck and start thrashing around. Luckily Peter was able to send him back into the water.
