Roseau, Dominica

We rose at 5.30am and were off at first light in order to make the crossing from Martinique to Dominica. The islands are 26m apart and it was a fine reach with 20-25 kinots of wind. As soon as one gets out from the lee of an island it is always a bit of a shock to find oneself back in the Atlantic.

There is a big contrast between French Martinique and Dominica. We are back in the 3rd World.=
