Marigot Bay

Sailed in here yesterday. Great to be at sea again. Anchored in 3m on what seems to be coral, or it could be rock.

Marigot is one of the few hurricane holes in this part of the carribean. If a hurricane is due, you sail in and tie your bows to the mangrove trees and lay a stern anchor.

It is also very picturesque with palm trees, hotels and a marina. Dr Doolittle was filmed here.

We have now had a couple of swims .... and very refreshing they were too. A good chance to scrape some barnacles off.! In fact, Blue Tarn developed quite a lot of growth over Christmas and will probably have to be re-antifouled soon.
