09/29 Update

We are now less than 100 nm from our way point south of Bonaire. At about 5 AM we reduced sails to slow down. Equinox was moving along at 7 K and it appeared that we would arrive in Bonaire at midnight. We would like to arrive in the daylight. I doubt that they have fish traps here as it is a marine park, but on some islands there are numerous fish traps. These are the equivalent of Maine lobster pots, but in the islands they use clear soda bottles making them hard to see.
The weather is warm and the winds 12 - 18 k and we are on a beam reach. It is a bit lumpy with 5 foot seas on the beam with a 5 - 6 second interval.
