The part for the auto-helm finally arrived, and I had watching the weather, so it was past time to move on and goodbye to San Juan. It I waited another day, I would have to make the 30+ mile trip east directly into the teeth of of the trade winds - hard slog. But this day I had winds from the NW, and calm seas for this last bit of the Atlantic, and made great time sailing 7+ knots along the northern coast of Puerto Rico. Amazing to see the clouds and rai n over El Junke, a mountainous rain forest, from the water. So after only 4 hours I made the San Juan passage, which is a narrow pass between the main island and some some smaller rocks, so had waves crashing on both sides as we exited the Atlantic and sailed into the calmer waters of Vieques Sound. I had originally planned to head for Fujardo to check out the chartering possibilities, but a pristine little island, Isla Palominos, caught my eye, and decided to pass up Fujardo, a potential base of operations, for a potential destination. I was able to grab a mooring since it was evening and the day trippers were heading back to Fujardo after a day of playing at the beach. There are no fees for the mornings in Puerto Rico or any of the surrounding islands, and it is nice to forego the anchoring process occasionally. Finally made it out of the Atlantic, so I toasted the sunset safely moored beside a tropical beach.
