Windward Passage to Haiti

It was a beautiful sailing day as we made for the Windward Passage and points south. We were able to see both Cabo Maisi, Cuba and Mole Saint Nicholas, Haiti at the same time as we entered the Windward Passage. With the global economic slowdown shipping traffic is less than half of what used to be normal in this important choke point of the seas. Once we were abeam of the southern arm of Haiti ship sightings were rare and we continued on for 30 more hours before turning up into the south bay and beating into a 25 knot North wind on our way to Port Morgan, lle a Vache, Haiti
