Oops! We’re in Guatemala

If you saw our position report for Friday, you know that we lost our transmission and had to stop in Guatemala. If only we’d had a little more wind, we could have made it to Barillas in El Salvador, but it was looking like four more days of drifting, so we said “uncle” and called the port captain at Puerto Quetzal. We were never in any danger, and now we’re safely (albeit somewhat expensively) docked in Marina Pez Vela, Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala. We really don’t know how long we’ll be here.

That’s the short story. I’m working on a longer story to post on the website for those who are interested. John also has some interesting photos. We'll make all this available soon.
