Arrived at Grand Cayman

In our days in the Pacific, we estimated our passages based on the five knots we do under power. We have to stop doing that. Instead of the 74 hours we estimated, albeit conservatively, it would take us to get here from Providencia, it took just 58. That means that we arrived after dark at 8:30 instead of in the daylight. We didn't leave Providencia until after noon figuring we would be a little faster than estimated, but we set two new records for our daily speed on the way.

Whatever. We're here now, and after finding our way in the dark in yet another strange harbor, we're secured to a quarantine mooring buoy for the night. In the morning, customs and immigration will tell us where to go to clear in and when.
