Well there was a slim weather window which we left on and are still hanging on too. Winds dropped in Cartagena allowing us to get out. We would have had to deal with Gale force winds from the East (behind us) through Gib. So off we went. Been pretty windy with winds into the low 30s and a short nasty sea. But we are slowly getting along. Lots of ships around tonight as we all converge on Cabo Di Gata. From here it is straight to Gib.
