Day 14: Land in zicht!

After being at sea for almost exactly two weeks we can see the contours of Suriname! It is now 0948 UTC (0649 local time) and we will be at the entrance of the river in about an hour. Our plan is to drop anchor in front of the Torarica Hotel. Apparently they have a swimming pool and sauna... Champagne is in the fridge but we have to concentrate on these last few miles first.
