Arrival in Cienfuegos!
Posted in : Hummingbird
Hummingbird had our final day at sea on this trip today as we set off on a 65nm passage NE to Cienfuegos. Powered by a strong easterly wind we made good progress and our easy 730am start proved suffice as we gently rolled along a course close to our rhumb line at 7.5kts. A good couple of chosen gybes by navigator Rob and we found our hidden entrance well before the end of the day. Shirley then navigated is in under motor sail as we picked off the various navigational markers and worked out way into the sheltered harbour and towards the marina, tying up just before the sun went down. An hour or 2 later and we were cleared into the latest of our Cuban ports and there was just enough time left in the evening for our guests to explore ashore for a cold drink.
