It's been a fairy-tale passage. None of the harrowing conditions that we were promised - instead we got some great sailing in. We did have to motor for a couple of days but that helped keep the passage short. Our spirits are high and we're looking forward to lots of cold, refreshing beverages.
Thanks to everyone who emailed and thought of us. I know it helped. We'll post pictures and write more soon.
