Caribbean Sea, 1660 The thunder startled him awake from his sleep. Captain Juan Carlos Vega shot to his feet and peered out the porthole at the swelling sea. The rain hadn't yet begun but the wind was whipping about, '' he saw. After hastily pulling on his clothing, he hurried topside to examine the problem further. There he found first officer Julio Delgado who was also surveying the weather. Captain Vega had to worry about than simply his ship, Real España. Since his vessel was the flagship of the fleet, he also had to look out for another five galleons too. He trusted the commanders of those ships to have the knowledge to navigate around the approaching squall. As sturdy as galleons were, that they were dreadful in storms; rough seas pumped them around to-and-fro something fierce. However, the highly trained and proficient crews aboard the vessels were accustomed to handling such situations; storms were a common event in the Caribbean. Vega walked aft on the deck peering out over the gunwale in the Growing sea surveying the fleet. The sun was just rising over the horizon making it much easier for him to survey the situation. He scowled for he understood Santo Domingo loomed ahead in the space. He looked at Delgado and talked. "Any word on San Rafael?" Delgado looked over at Vega. Shaking his head he replied, "No sir. I haven't heard anything." Vega frowned, surveying the weather . Sighing, he explained, "This weather isn't going to help things." "No sir. But the storm looks as if it will not be too intense. Perez may even miss it; it may dissipate until it reaches his location. Wherever that may be." Delgado paused. Then, continuing, "Even when the storm does reach him , Perez is able to deal with this." .
