Off the coast of Cuba
Hobo II and Reboot are currently about 50 miles north of Cayo De La Lena on the northwest coast of Cuba. The last 24 hours have been beautiful sailing, warm, light to moderate winds, fairly gentle following seas. We did motor for about 13 hours last night as the wind died and we were fighting the current of the Gulf Stream. This morning the wind picked back up and we are now sailing along at about 7 knots under clear and sunny skies. We have about 150 miles left to go to Isla Mujeres where we will check into Mexico. More when we arrive, as the radio filed blog entries are by necessity short.
