Madeira to Caribbean - Day 17

For Christmas we got the gift of wind. We are traveling along a broken frontal boundary belonging to a stationary depression to our northeast. This system created small squalls that gave us 20-30kt winds through the night and noticeable waves. It's been a wild ride with the boat occasionally surfing at 10kts down the face of a wave. We logged 192nm over 25-hours - we had the last of our time zone changes, we're now -4 GMT, 1-hour ahead of EST. About 200nm to go so our ETA in Marigot, Saint Martin is Friday evening, Dec 27th.
