Sailing Bailando

Onto Glover’s Reef

We leave Belize – technically – and head to sea. Our plan is to meander toward Honduras. We hope to stop over at Turneffe for a few days, then move on to Glover’s Reef, and if we dare, we’ll backtrack a bit northward to Lighthouse Reef – the farthest east of the three atolls. It would give us a tactical advantage on our south-easterly heading given the prevailing easterly wind direction. But, plans or no plans, the mainsail roller furler fowls up as we arrive in Turneffe so we cut everything short – we dart over to Glover’s Reef and focus our attention there. Wow… this is a beautiful atoll and the sailing is great despite the technical mishaps… technically we’re also supposed to be out of Belize so it must be some kind of theme for this leg of our journey.
