FRIDAY 1st January  2010       New Years day
Very shakey start for most of  us, except Aileen, who does not drink. Gave it up a couple of years ago.
10.00  we sailed out of Mustique, having had an enjoyable night.
The wind was light for a change, 9 knots behind us as we sailed over to Port Elizebeth in Bequia, where we gave back the Island guide book
to Clieve and Alice Deasey
13.00  we sailed north from Bequia to St Lucia,, a distance of approx 55miles  to " Soufriere" or the PITON's
The wind was close on the nose most of the time, so we motor / sailed to keep the average speed up..
19.00 we were moored under the Petit Piton, and had our dinner,  consisting of Scollips wrapped in bacon for starter and
                                                                                                     Roast leg of Pork for main course plus roast potatoes and crackling
21.30  Not happy with our position and especially as we were rolling badly, we slipped the moorings and motered to " Marigot Bay"
a distance of approx 7 miles,
22.30 we moored in " Marogot Bay " and had a night cap before going to bed in much more comfortable conditions.
lots of showers during the night...
