Punta Cana – Las Pargueras

June 12, 2019

I crossed the Mona passage yesterday. It was a long, long crossing.  Winds were never above 13 Kts and most of the time between 8 and 11, but the swells/chop came from stronger winds somewhere else.  Big chops and little wind is not a good combination.  I had to make long tacks using the engine most of the time to finally make it across.  I left the marina at 9:30 and it must have been 1am when I entered the shallows in the west coast of Puerto Rico.  My aim was Ponce but I was too late. The short night lee only allowed me to reach Las Pargueras.

I m anchored here at the bay.  Will continue to Ponce at midnight.
