Fajardo, Puerto Rico to Samana, Dominican Republic

We're under way on a 240 nm passage from Puerto Rico to Dominican Republic. We took a route along the northern coast of Puerto Rico to catch what little wind might be blowing. Not too surprisingly, the conditions are not quite as forecast. The winds were 20-25k instead of 15k, and have not dissipated as expected today. The only problem we have with this is that we're cruising too fast. We aimed our departure from PR such that we would enter the marina in Samana, DR during daylight hours. Now we'll either have to slow down to wait for daylight or find an alternate anchorage.
