We are here

7+ days to Tortola. Lost our Genoa 5 days out but made it in with Yankee.
We were attacked by the Bermuda triangle - losing our engine, GPS, Sat phone all in 15 minutes. Sail off for repair, new 24v. alternator and PYI shaft connector on the way. Great sail despite the problems averaging better than 200 miles/day. Waiting at Village Cay for parts to catch up with us.

Congrates on your safe arrival--

When you have a moment, please advise how you lost your electronics and how you handled navigation after the fact.
