Sailing to Colombia took us 53,5 hours from when we lifted anchor in Spanish Water on Curacao, till we were securely tied up at Marina Santa Marta in Colombia. This meant that we averaged 6 knots in a nice downwind sail.

Others have seen twice that on crossings, so we were very happy. Here’s a video from the trip:
