Heeding local knowledge

Together with most of the ARC fleet we are delaying our departure from Santa Marta for another day. The wind speed has dropped dramatically here, but the local coastguard advises us that the sea state will still be very rough by the headland 30 miles to the west, close to where the Ria Magdalena joins the sea. The seas are forecast to settle gradually, from 4m wave height today to 2m tomorrow.
Tomorrow it is.
