We are having quite a time dealing with all the land effects on the wind and are not used to changing sails/motoring every few hours. We'll take mid ocean tradewinds any day over these 'gap' winds and 'thermal drainage'.
We are now off the coast of Guatemala (1430 UTC position 13d37'N, 90d35'W) and decided not to burn a bunch of diesel getting in to Marina Chiapas by sunset and instead come in Saturday morning. The 'owner' wants to be somewhere we an watch the Superbowl so we're still OK there.
Just started the engine again and have more spotted dolphins playing on the bow.
