Our most recent 24-hour sail from Mayaguana to Rum Cay was pleasant and fast and comforable and...cold! I had to dig out socks and blankets and layers of fleece for my late-night watch.

We have officially passed back out of the Tropic of Cancer, and the tropics in general, and it shows. The water is colder, the air is colder, and the miserable weather that affects the east coast of the U.S. makes its way, in diluted form, down to us now. There is allegedly some great snorkeling along the reef on the southside of Rum Cay, but I don't think my thin blood could take it.

Tonight I will be wearing pants at our beachside barbecue of fresh fish. What a shame.
