Before starting our Sailing Holidays in Colombia we sailed down to Colombia from Martinique non-stop, dodging hurricane Elsa.
Here you can find our film about this exhausting trip:
We have several reasons to be in Colombia:
- it is a beautiful South American country;
- the arrival protocol for sailors is very easy in COVID times – no quarantine, no PCR tests required;
- we were waiting for Tali’s daughter Ksenia to arrive. Due to the last travel restrictions we didn’t see her for the last 2,5 years;
- Tali’s passport. The old one is full of stamps and will expire soon.
After very quick and easy checking in Tali went to Bogota to apply for her new passport in the Russian Consulate in Bogota and to see her good friend Ana. We were told that the new passport will be ready on 3 months or maybe more.
In Bogota it was really chilly and rainy, anout 10 degrees, because the city is situated in the mountains at an altitude of 2500 meters. And when she came back to Cartagena the temperatire difference was about 20 degrees.
In a few days we picked up Ksenia from the airort of Cartagena and sailed down 20 nm to Isla Baru, Cienaga de cholon and Islas del Rosario. Clear water and wonderful holiday feeling.

Love, Peace and Ocean Breeze
