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:

Hiking, diving and sailing in New Caledonia

Sailing in New Caledonia, should be on everyones short-list. What's there not to like? The water is pristine, crystal clear and has beautiful colors. You're protected by a huge barrier reef, that shields you from the waves (the worst of them at least) and if you pick...
