What a difference turning the corner into the Guadeloupe - Iles Des
Saintes channel has made! Into big seas and a strong
wind and current right on the nose sailing as I now am in a ENE direction.
My boatspeed is right down. I am gunning the engine at 2300 RPM and now
down to making barely between 3.5 to 4kts.
