We are convinced, that the delay of our departure was to blame for our trouble. At sunrise everything was very calm.
A previous exploration-visit to Farallón Centinela 2 weeks before was made in a very calm sea. That trip was made very early.
With a very small generator(s) everything would have been much easier for us, but it was not available.
But the evening was approaching. In the tropics it gets dark very early and really fast. So we had no other choice but return to the continent.
At night we returned safe but very disappointed
to our base at Carenero.
