On the morning of the 8th we met Javier Martin the Spanish captain of the Twyla. The Twyla was anchored in the bay just off from the port in Surpuzzo (a small fishing village) right next door to the Darrian Gap. We soon set off on our 5 day journey to Mirimar in Panama via the San Blas Islands, the water was calm and the sun was out, we sailed for 6 hours and dropped anchor is a large bay sheltered by a large reef.

Javier then took us to a nearby island where we foraged for coconuts, i think you are only meant to pick up the coconuts that had fallen to the ground however seeing some tempting ones on a low branch i climbed up and hacked them down with Javier's machete.

After the sun set on our first day on the boat we went back the ship hollowed out the coconuts and made some Cuba Libres. The cabins were small and hot but better then the bunk beds in Turbo!
