After three lovely weeks in one of the most beautiful islands we have been so far, it is time to keep moving toward Panama. Our insurance requires us to be south of 10 degrees North Latitude before the end of June, so we decided to take advantage of a weather window that will bring us closer to our goal.
Later today we are heading for Cayo Albuquerque, an isolated atoll 30 nautical miles south of San Andreas and about 80 miles south of Providencia (where we are now). We plan to sail overnight and arrive with a high sun tomorrow. There is NOTHING at this atoll except protection from most weather and AWESOME snorkeling and diving. Unfortunately, along with everything else that is broken, our 7kw generator that powers our scuba compressor isn't working, so our diving will be limited to the 7 full tanks we have on board....
This atoll is uninhabited except for a few Colombian Navy guys, so we will share our experiences of this place when we get to Panama.
For now here are some pictures of our last days here in Providencia.
