Two weeks and seven hours later we arrived in the Barbados, safe and sound. After our Pacific crossing of 21 days from the Galapagos to the Marquesas, this passage ranks as the  favourite second in our long distance passages.  The trade winds were blowing and we consistently averaged over 150 nm per day, awesome sailing.  The last two days saw some squalls and very finicky winds just enough to challenge us.  
Here I am raising the yellow quarantine flag with Barbados in the background. We made landfall about 1300 hours and decided to just drop the hook and do the check in dance tomorrow.  Whew, another safe passage. 
  Bridgetown, Barbados!
